The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees "being 
present and acting throughout, Chairman Boyden called the meeting 
to order at 1:15 p.m. 

It was noted that the spelling of "Freiburg" in the

It was thereupon 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
February 11, 1964 as corrected 

After discussion of the success of the University's 
College Bowl team, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : Whereas, The student representatives of the 
University of Massachusetts who 
participated in the televised 
College Bowl series conducted them- 
selves in a manner reflecting credit 
to the University, and 

Whereas, The success of these students was 
based upon the cooperative efforts 
of many people at the University 
and was enthusiastically supported 
by the student body as a whole, 

Therefore, be it Resolved : That the Board 
of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts commends and con- 
gratulates the members of the College 
Bowl team and all faculty, administra-

Chairman Boyden commented on the contributions of Trustee 
Kathryn Furcolo to the University of Massachusetts, remembering her 

as being " deeply interested in the welfare of the University 

. . . . " and always " vitally interested in the welfare of the 

young people of the Commonwealth. The Trustees joined Chairman 
Boyden in expressing their sorrow upon her untimely death.

(Dean Lamar Soutter arrived at 1:18 p.m.) 

Chairman Boyden continued the meeting by welcoming new 
Trustees Gordon and Lyons to the Board. 

President Lederle stated that as of March 9 the Saarinen 
firm has been cleared to do business in Massachusetts. There is 
no reason to expect further delay in working out a contract for 
architectural services for the Fine Arts Building. 

The President spoke of the pressure on graduate enroll- 
ment at the University saying that great expansion is occurring 
without appropriate financial support. Academic personnel are 
currently allotted to the University on a 15 to 1 ratio which is 
not adequate to cover graduate instruction without diluting under- 
graduate instruction. The President spoke of the need to break 
out of this lockstep in the allocation of positions. 

(Trustee Healey arrived at 1:20 p.m.) 

The President discussed the pending reorganization of the 
College of Agriculture which conforms with recent curriculum changes 
previously approved. This would reduce the number of departments 
in the College from 11 to 8. He also spoke of a possible future 
change in the name of the College which would better reflect the 
present mandate which is broader than the word "Agriculture". 

An ad hoc committee of the faculty has proposed a 
Kennedy Memorial Lectureship, an outline of which was distributed 
to the Trustees. This would be similar to the Godkin Lectureships 
at Harvard or the Cook Lectureships at Michigan in that it would 
cover a span of days and the lectures would be prepared for 
publication, probably by the University of Massachusetts Press. 
There were questions on the cost of the lectures and a suggestion 
that Amherst College be consulted for their experience. It was 
noted that the Alumni Memorial Lectures were set up with this very 
purpose in mind. It was felt that the Alumni would be happy to 
support such an endeavor. It was suggested there be a connection 
with the Commonwealth Kennedy Memorial Committee by having legisla- 
tion to include an amount sufficient to cover these lectures in our 
budget. On the other hand, it was suggested that the project be 
retained under University initiative. 

President Lederle commented on the House Bill (state) 
that is now in Ways and Means Committee to set up a law school at 
the University. He stated that he would write a letter to Ways and 
Means, in accordance with University policy, giving as much in- 
formation as is available on potential cost to the Commonwealth, 
expressing no position on the need for a law school, but expressing 
willingness to organize one if the Legislature so desires. 

(Trustee Plimpton arrived at 1:30 p.m.)

The Executive Committee reported its recommendation that 
the ad hoc screening committee of the Trustees to find a Medical 
School Dean he continued as an ad hoc Committee on the Medical 
School. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To accept the report of the Executive 
Committee and to establish an ad hoc 
Committee on the Medical School. 

Dean Soutter made a brief report on the status of the 
Medical School to the Board. 

The meeting recessed at 2:04 p.m. 

The meeting reconvened at 2:15 p.m. 

Present at this time were the architects for the south- 
west dormitories, Mr. Andrew Daland, who is the project architect, 
and Mr. John Whacker. These representatives carefully explained 
the layouts and detailed plans for the southwest dormitories. 
Among other items, it was brought out that it is estimated that 
the cost per student in this complex will be $4,568 overall, with 
the low- rise dormitories running about $14.50 per square foot and 
the high-rise dormitories about $15.50 per square foot. It is 
estimated that the low-rise dormitory construction will be started 
about June 1, 1964, with completion scheduled about August, 1965. 
The Dining Commons will be put out for bid about September 1, 1964, 
with completion in June or July of 1966 when the high-rise 
dormitories will also be completed. After discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the final plans and specifications 
for two twenty-two story dormitories and 
four other dormitories for the southwest 
dormitory area designed by Hugh Stubbins 
and Associates for the University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority as pre- 
sented to this meeting shall be approved 
subject to minor modifications, if any, 
on review by Sasaki, Walker and Associates 
for site development and Pietro Belluschi 
for design coordination and technical de- 
tails by the University and that the 
Treasurer of the University is authorized 
to sign the plans and specifications for 
and in the name of the Trustees. 

Trustee Schuck, Chairman of the Trustee Committee on 
Faculty and Program of Study reported for the Committee and it was 
moved, seconded and

It was further moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Ph.D. program in Chemical 
Engineering as reported in Document 
64-052 be approved and said document 
is attached to and hereby made part 
of these minutes. 

The next item for discussion was the Labor Relations Re- 
search Center proposal. There was extended discussion of this pro- 
posal which centered about the possibility of having a labor- 
management research center. Trustee Schuck presented considerable 
material which showed that there is no settled pattern in this 
respect, but felt that separating the two was the rule. After ex- 
tended discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To resubmit this proposal to the Trustee 
Committee on Faculty and Program of 
Study for further study and recommenda- 
tions as to whether it should be a separate 
program or a joint program. 

It is understood that the Committee will confer with 
Dr. Redfern and Trustee Thompson and another report is requested 
at the next meeting of the Board of Trustees. It was further under 
stood that they will not present a detailed academic program at 
this time. 

Trustee Schuck further reported on the discussion of the 
Trustee Committee on Faculty and Program of Study that the Presi- 
dent in this critical academic market needs authority to make firm 
offers to academic personnel from Instructor through Department 
Head. The committee has asked him to confer with legal counsel in 
drafting an appropriate delegation, it being understood that offers 
are for one year appointments and would not grant tenure. The 
committee will be submitting a proposal in the near future. The 
committee also expects to get a procedure for analysis of new 
appointments, promotions, and resignations on a long-term basis.

MINUTES OF MEETING OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

April 13, 1964, 12:30 p.m., Statler Hilton Hotel, Boston 

PRESENT : Chairman Boyden, President Lederle,

(National Education Director AFL-CIO) 
and Mr. Austion Broadhurst 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 195S having 
"been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, Chairman Boyden called the meeting 
to order at 12:30 p.m. Following the luncheon, the Chairman con- 
vened the business session and introduced the new member of the 
Board, Dr. Martin Sweig, and the other guests present. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
March 11, 1964. 

On recommendation of the President, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the granting of Bachelor degrees

Chairman Schuck stated that the Faculty and Program of 
Study Committee had two items which they were recommending to the 
Board. The first item was the previously discussed proposal for a 
program of Labor Education that would be established with a small 
core of teaching and research staff, under the guidance of a 
broadly representative advisory council, and with an interdepartmen- 
tal graduate faculty committee which would have jurisdiction over a 
graduate program that would later be submitted to the Board for 
approval in regard to details. Chairman Schuck stated that the 






I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Faculty and Program of Study Committee had consulted with the 
University Labor Education Committee and had found that the School 
of Business Administration is planning to offer services to 
business and industry, along with tentative plans of a similar 
nature in the School of Engineering for industrial liaison services. 
She introduced Mr. Lawrence Rogin, National Education Director 
AFL-CIO. Mr. Rogin stated that he was familiar with the proposal 
and had worked with the University Labor Education Committee during 
the course of their planning. In his opinion this constituted a 
very important program in regard to extension services that should 
be provided to labor in a state as industrialized as Massachusetts. 
Also, he noted, Massachusetts was the only major industrial state 
without such a program at the present time. Adult education ser- 
vice is a particular responsibility of state universities around 
the nation, Mr. Rogin stated, and are needed in a society that has 
complex social, political and economic problems confronting it. In 
a real sense, he added, the state universities are those institu- 
tions of higher education most closely related to the needs and 
aspirations of the working people of our society. Experience has 
found that such service as proposed in this program develops con- 
structive and healthy relationships between the Working people and 
higher education. 

The university of Wisconsin has an outstanding program in 
this area, Cornell University has one geared to both undergraduate 
and graduate collegiate training. He stated that in his opinion a 
labor program organized separately from services devoted to business 
and industry is preferred although this does not injure nor pro- 
hibit cooperative joint efforts wherever feasible. He noted that 
the University of Connecticut, when expanding its program, 
separated the formerly combined management and labor programs in 
order to provide greater cohesion and unity to these two services. 
Mr. William Belanger, President of the State AFL-CIO Labor Council, 
added that his people would be willing to work for immediate legis- 
lative support of such a program. In his opinion, the Legislature 
seems favorably disposed to the general principles of having such 
a program of educational service to the working people of the 
Commonwealth. It was thereupon moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the program for Labor Education as 

contained in the report of the ad hoc Committee 
on Labor Education with such mofifications and 
adjustments as may be required as the program 
develops. (Copy of the report of the Committee 
on Labor Education is attached to and hereby 
made part of the minutes) (Document 6-4-053) 

Upon recommendation of the President, Chairman Schuck 
said the Faculty and Program of Study Committee was recommending 
the appointment of Dr. Oswald Tippo as Provost. It was thereupon 
moved, seconded and unanimously 



2589 



Appointment 
of New 
Provost 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED ! To appoint Dr. Oswald Tippo as Provost of the 
University of Massachusetts and concurrently 
as Professor of Botany, with tenure in the 
position of Professor, U of M. 

Mr. Paul Weidlinger and Mr. Levy of Weidlinger Engineers 
and Mr. Radford of Skidmore, Owing s & Merrill were invited into 
the meeting for the purpose of discussing latest plans in con- 
nection with the Sports Stadium. Mr. Radford said that some 
revision in the preliminary plans had been made in accordance with 
their understanding of Trustee desire. Such changes required the 
removal of the public facilities and players dressing rooms to a 
separate structure adjacent to the Stadium. The seating capacity 
is still planned for 17,300 permanent seats with additional 
temporary seating possible. The press box was now raised above 
the western edge of the structure. In working with Sasaki, Walker 
& Associates, Mr. Radford said they had suggested a high hedge 
coverage in the Stadium area. He noted the height of the top seats 
were 40 feet from the field instead of the previous 28 feet 
originally planned, and that the press box was 50 feet above the 
field. The facility would allow for additional expansion in the 
future if such a need were required. 

Mr. Broadhurst, legal bond counsel for the Building 
Authority stated that the cost is estimated at $1,279,500, 
compared to a preliminary original estimate of $1,100,000. The in- 
crease, said Mr. Broadhurst, does not make this portion, nor the 
total project costs with the dormitories, beyond the contemplated 
financing. He noted that the total project cost would approach 
$11,000,000 and that the slight increase in the Stadium cost would 
not exceed this amount. The President stated that he was hopeful 
that the current level of athletic fees would support the project 
as he did not wish to recommend any increase in fees at this time. 
Mr. Broadhurst stated that the costing estimates show that the 
project can be financed if the fee allocated for the facility is 
$8.00 for the first several years. This,, he added, would allow 
some contingency reserve for emergencies as well as adequate con- 
struction contingencies. He noted that the Commonwealth is provid- 
ing site and road work, including drainage, fencing, turfing and 
paving. After general discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the materials presented to this meeting 
by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and by Paul 
Weidlinger and Associates be approved as the 
preliminary plans and specifications for the 
sports facility included in the Fourth 
Project of the University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority referred to in the Contract 
for Financial Assistance dated as of January 1, 
1964 between the Commonwealth and said 
Authority.

Mr. Healey, Chairman of the Medical School Committee, 
stated that his committee is satisfied with the progress being 
made on the establishment of a new University of Massachusetts 
Medical School. Two items would require Board approval in order 
to maintain this progress. These two items would be a survey of 
selected possible hospital facilities in the Commonwealth and the 
use of medical educational consultants for advising on the Medical 
School program and related matters. Mr. Healey noted that Dr. 
Rourke, of New York City, an expert on hospital surveys has agreed 
to conduct such a study for the University if desired. The Medical 
School Committee felt that such a survey would be highly desirable. 
Copies of the proposed budget that would be required to move the 
program forward were distributed to the Trustees and included 
costs for such items as site location, surveys, planning, and core 
staffing requirements. After general discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : That the budget for fiscal year 1965 in 
amount of $184,000 proposed for the Uni- 
versity School of Medicine as submitted 
by the President be approved and the ad- 
ministration be authorized to submit said 
budget to the executive office of Ad- 
ministration and Finance. 

It was also moved, seconded and 

VOTED ! To authorize the Treasurer of the University, 
Kenneth W. Johnson, acting with the approval 
of the President, to enter into an agreement 
with Anthony J. J. Rourke, M.D., hospital con- 
sultant for hospital surveys by his firm of 
hospital experts and to expend not more than 
$15,500 for such purpose. 

Mr. Halgis reporting for the Buildings and Grounds Com- 
mittee, presented a number of recommended land acquisition votes. 

It was 

VOTED: In accordance with Chapter 705, Acts of 1962, 
Item 8063-19, authorizing the Trustees of the 
University to acquire certain lands with the 
buildings thereon for the development of the 
University by purchase or by eminent domain 
under Chapter 79 of the General Laws, and the 
authority granted therein, independent 
appraisals of the value of the land and build- 
ings having been made by qualified disinterested 
appraisers and filed with Kenneth W. Johnson, 
Treasurer, on motion duly made and seconded, it

Mr. Broadhurst presented lease agreement forms to the 
Board, one in regard to the constructing and furnishing of six 
dormitory buildings and the other in regard to the Dining Commons

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, and in the absence of the Chairman, 
Trustee Thompson was unanimously elected Chairman pro tem. 

In considering Item 1 of the agenda, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
April 13, 1964. 

At the request of the Chairman pro tem, the President 
recommended that in consonance with similar recent appointments of 
qualified personnel to the University staff he wished to recommend 
Dr. Lamar Soutter to appointment as Professor of Surgery with 
tenure concurrent with his existing appointment as Dean of the 
University Medical School. It was thereupon moved, seconded and 
unanimously 

VOTED : That Dr. Lamar Soutter, concurrently with 
his title of Dean of the University 
Medical School, is hereby appointed 
Professor of Surgery, with tenure as 
Professor, U of M. 

The President reaffirmed the invitation to all members of 
the Board to attend the dedication of the Frank L. Boyden Building 
on Sunday, May 17, at 2:30 p.m. in Amherst. The President noted 
that Mr. Pumphret, Chairman of the Building Authority, was visiting 
the campus in Amherst today in connection with some problems con- 
cerning insufficient finishers at work on the dormitories on the 
hill. It was the intention of Mr. Pumphret to see what might be 
necessary to keep the construction of this project on schedule in 
order that the dormitories can be available at the opening of the 
fall term.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The President explained the announced policy of expanding 
admissions at the University by making available an opportunity to 
approximately 300 qualified students, who could not otherwise be 
accepted, to attend the summer session with the opportunity for 
those who successfully complete this session of enrolling as full- 
time students in the following spring term. The President noted 
the earnest attempt of the University to take as many students as 
possible and that this special program was one method of achieving 
limited expansion immediately. 

The President briefly explained the budget plans on which 
the University budget documents will be based and noted that these 
plans in turn are built upon the requirements of enrollment in- 
creases, staffing requirements, new program developments, and the 
strengthening and expanding of existing programs. He stated that 
the University budget documents would soon be sent to the Board 
for their consideration and approval. 

The Chairman pro tern requested Trustee Haigis to report 
for the Buildings and Grounds Committee. Chairman Haigis explained 
the matter of requesting the Town of Amherst to abandon certain 
streets in relation to the orderly development of the campus accord 
ing to the Master Plan. After general discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Judge Samuel Blassberg on be- 
half of the Board to contact the Town 
Manager and Town Counsel of the Town of 
Amherst for the purpose of arranging for 
the Town to release in quit claim all of 
its rights, titles and interests in 
Hillside Avenue so-called and Eastman 
Lane so-called to the University for the 
purpose of enabling the University to 
develop the campus in accordance with 
the University Master Plan. 

After general discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Board approve the final plans 
for the road construction as related to 
the first phase of the Master Planning 
Traffic and Road Development project. 

In order to keep the road plan of the campus moving 
forward, the Chairman stated it would be necessary for the Board 
to authorize the awarding of a contract for the first phase of this 
project. It was thereupon moved, seconded and

Kenneth W. Johnson, to execute said con- 
struction contract in the name of and for 
the Board of Trustees and to take any and 
all other actions necessary to complete 
the work in accordance with the plans and 
specifications . 

The Chairman explained the need for cooperative action 
in development of the town sewerage lines through University propertjy 
and the request of the Town for an easement in order to accomplish 
this. After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Trustees of the University grant 
to the Inhabitants of the Town of Amherst, 
Hampshire County, Massachusetts, an ease- 
ment thirty (30) feet in width for the 
purpose of laying and maintaining a sewer 
line across property of the University 
which will provide the necessary sewage 
facilities for the proposed new football 
site and other athletic facilities for 
the University; such easement to commence 
at the Town of Amherst Sewage Treatment 
Plant and to continue to Amity Street so- 
called, as shown on a plan entitled, "Ease- 
ment for Sewers through land of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, dated February 
1964, No. 8-SG63-L15, drawn by Haley & 
Ward, Engineers". The granting of this 
easement is contingent upon the confirma- 
tion of the authority of the Trustees to 
grant such an easement. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : In accordance with Chapter 705, Acts of 

1962, Item 8063-19, authorizing the Trustees 
of the University to acquire certain lands 
with the buildings thereon, for the development 
of the University, by purchase or by eminent 
domain under Chapter 79 of the General Laws, 
and the authority granted therein, independent 
appraisals of the value of the land and build- 
ings having been made by qualified disinterested 
appraisers, and filed with Kenneth W. Johnson, 
Treasurer, on motion duly made and seconded, 
it was unanimously

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : That the Trustees of the University purchase, 
or take by eminent domain, in fee, the 
property of Elsie Blasko situate on the 
westerly side of Sunset Avenue in Amherst, 
Hampshire County, Massachusetts, and being 
the same premises described in a deed from 
Frank P. Toole to Stanley Blasko, dated 
November November 12, 1913, and recorded in 
the Hampshire County Registry of Deeds, 
Book 696, Page 391, and that the purchase 
price for said property be Seventeen Thousand 
Four Hundred Ninety ($17,490.00) dollars. 

The Chairman noted the traffic impediment of the brick 
building west of the Curry Hicks Cage and said that it was no 
longer necessary for even storage purposes. After discussion, it 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Board approve the demolition of 
the brick storage building west of the 
Curry Hicks Cage. 

Chairman Haigis stated that the Buildings and Grounds 
Committee's recommendations on the proposed capital outlay budgets 
would come before the Board at the next meeting. 

In the absence of the Chairman, the President reported 
that the Executive Committee had discussed a possible grant from 
the Furcolo Foundation which the University would intend to utilize 
in establishing, as feasible, a program of congressional intern- 
ships in cooperation with the Massachusetts Congressional delega- 
tion. These interns would be known as Furcolo Scholars in memory 
of Kathryn Furcolo, late member of the Board. 

The President also reported that the Executive Committee 
had considered the great need for university- level educational 
opportunities in the greater Boston area and it was the consensus 
of the Executive Committee that if the Legislature requested the 
University would respond to meet this need. If this were done it 
was his hope that by the fall of 1965 such a facility could involve 
1,000 students with emphasis upon commuter low-cost education. 
Such a facility should be located, if possible, near mass transit 
systems. The President noted the great advantages of having the 
University of Massachusetts undertake this type of educational ex- 
pansion, such advantages including strong accreditation position 
of the University, the ability to attract highly qualified faculty, 
and experience in coordinating and developing university- level pro- 
grams. It was noted that coordination among institutions in Boston 
ought to be an important factor to take into account in any such 
development. The President stated that the University would be in- 
terested in expanding educational opportunities in Boston rather 
than in substituting for existing facilities. It was noted that 
University action in this area would insure high standards, 
economy, and relatively quick effective action.

In the absence of the Chairman, the President reported 
that the Ad Hoc Medical School Committee had held a continuous 
series of meetings on the study and analysis now going on in 
connection with site selection, hospital facilities, and program 
requirements of the Medical School. The Committee had visited the 
Lemuel Shattuck Hospital and had also talked with Dr. Anthony 
Rourke and his staff as to their plans in conducting the survey of 
hospitals suitable for teaching requirements of the Medical School. 
The President stated that there is a possibility of extended 
discussion at the May 22 Board meeting of the plans and progress 
of the Medical School Committee and of Dean Soutter. 

Chairman Schuck, reporting for the Faculty and Program of 
Study Committee, called the attention of the Board to the proposed 
policy on faculty appointments (Document 64-062) and noted that 
with the heavy competition in recruiting qualified faculty and the 
rapid growth of University staffing requirements such a policy 
would be highly desirable. She emphasized that the policy would 
not cover Deans, Associate and Assistant Deans, Librarian, Provost, 
and similar high-level positions. She also stated the Faculty and 
Program of Study Committee was working with the administration to 
develop an inventory listing of appointments and staffing patterns 
that would be of great benefit to the Trustees. There was some 
opinion expressed as to whether or not this proposal might be an 
undue delegation of Board responsibility. It was pointed out by 
Chairman Schuck, however, that the ability to act promptly in re- 
cruiting frequently means the difference between success and 
mediocrity. She noted that the Departments and Deans are most 
familiar with the job requirements and the qualifications of candi- 
dates being recommended. Making appointments in an institution as 
large as the University must be institutionalized. She noted that 
there were a number of protections as to Board responsibility in- 
cluding the fact that no tenure appointments would be authorized 
by the President under this policy, that any appointments made 
under this policy would be limited to a three-year trial period 
and then would require Board action. Such an institutionalized 
process is essential if the University hopes to have any success in 
recruiting under today's market conditions. 

It was pointed out that the first vote being recommended 
would merely be that of amending Article VIII of the current by-laws 
and would , in and of itself, retain to the Board complete 
authority to an extent greater than presently allowed under the by- 
laws. After general discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the By-Laws of the Board of Trustees 
as heretofore amended be and they hereby 
are further amended by striking out 
Article VIII thereof and by inserting in 
its place the following new Article VIII, 
namely: 



TRUSTEE 



J

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

"All members of the professional staff 
shall be elected or appointed to their 
respective positions by the Board of 
Trustees after recommendation by the 
President, except as the Board of 
Trustees may delegate to the President 
or other officers of the University 
the authority to make such elections 
or appointments to specific positions. 
All appointments and elections, 
whether made by the Board of Trustees 
or by its authority, shall be made 
within the limit of available funds. 
No new position titles in the insti- 
tution shall be created without the 
express vote of the Board of Trustees. 
The President of the University is 
authorized formally to accept 
resignations." 

After further discussion as to the desirability of 
delegating to a limited extent appointing authority, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : That pursuant to General Laws, C. 75, 

S. 3A and to Article VTII of the By-Laws 
of the Board of Trustees the authority 
of the Board of Trustees to appoint in- 
structors, assistant professors, associate 
professors, professors, athletic coaching 
personnel, heads of departments and chair- 
men of departments, on annual or academic 
basis of appointment, without tenure and 
for specified terms not longer than three 
years in any instance be and hereby is 
delegated to the President of the Univer- 
sity, and that it be and hereby is declared 
that such delegation is necessary and de- 
sirable . 

Trustee Thompson temporarily relinquished the chair to 
Dr. Croce in order to be recorded in opposition to the vote. 

(Trustee Kiernan left for a prior commitment at 2:45 p.m. 

Chairman Schuck informed the Board that the Faculty and 
Program of Study Committee was recommending to the Board adoption 
of a statement on Academic Freedom that had been recommended by the 
Faculty Senate and by the President. This statement appears as 
Part I of Document 64-061.

Policy on 
Tenure 



Academic 
Freedom 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Chairman indicated that in the original draft re- 
ferred to the committee, the proposed tenure rules and regulations 
had included references to non-academic professional staff but that 
in the opinion of the committee the policy on tenure would not be 
appropriate as a means of assuring job stability for such members 
of the staff and the committee was, therefore, recommending to the 
Board a policy on tenure rules and regulations that did not in- 
corporate coverage for non-academic professional staff. Such a 
policy for non-academic professional staff members would be de- 
veloped and forwarded by the committee at an appropriate time. 
It was noted that the proposed policy was in conformance with 
standard forms of tenure at leading institutions of higher educatioi 
in the country with minor exceptions relevant to the situation at 
the University of Massachusetts. The Chairman pointed out that the 
proposed policy would not authorize "automatic" granting of tenure, 
but would require the initiative of the faculty member concerned 
to insure consideration of his situation whenever the circumstances 
warranted. The Chairman pointed out to the Board that the third 
part of Document 64.-O6I in relation to faculty action on tenure and 
dismissal was an action by the Faculty Senate and was being re- 
ferred to the Board for information only. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the following resolutions be and 
hereby are adopted, namely: 

RESOLVED: 

That the following declaration as to academic 
freedom be and hereby is adopted as the policy 
of the Trustees of the University of Massa- 
chusetts, namely; 

(a) The teacher is entitled to full freedom in 
research and in the publication of the results, 
subject to the adequate performance of his 
other academic duties; but research for pecuniary 
return may be undertaken only in accordance with 
established policies of the Trustees. 

(b) The teacher is entitled to freedom in the 
classroom in discussing his subject, but he 
should be careful not to introduce into his 
teaching controversial matter which has no re- 
lation to his subject. 



ir 



r 



i 



2605 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

(c) The teacher is a citizen, a member of a 
learned profession, and a member of the pro- 
fessional staff of the University. When he 
speaks or writes as a citizen, he shall be 
free from censorship or discipline by the 
University, but his special position in the 
community imposes special obligations. As 
a man of learning and a member of the pro- 
fessional staff of the University, he must 
remember that the public may judge his pro- 
fession and the University by his utterances. 
Hence he must at all times be accurate, 
exercise appropriate restraint, show respect 
for the opinions of others and make every 
effort to indicate that he is not a spokesman 
for the University except in circumstances, 
if any, where he is so designated by the 
Trustees or the President. 

RESOLVED FURTHER: 

That said policy as to academic freedom apply- 
to all persons who are members of the pro- 
fessional staff of the University who perform 
teaching functions whether or not such persons 
occupy "academic positions" as that term is 
defined in the Tenure Policies, Rules and 
Regulations of the Trustees and that no removal 
of a person from a position in the professional 
staff of the University shall be deemed a re- 
moval for just cause under said Tenure Policies, 
Rules and Regulations if such removal would con- 
stitute a breach or infringement of said policy 
as to academic freedom. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : That the Proposed Tenure Policies, Rules 
and Regulations appearing as Item II in 
Document 6*4-061 presented to this meeting, 
as amended in red pencil, be and they 
hereby are adopted as the Tenure Policies, 
Rules and Regulations of the Board of 
Trustees of the University of Massachusetts; 
that they be published and filed as required 
by law and that they apply to all persons 
currently holding or hereafter appointed 
to academic positions in the professional 
staff of the University. 



The Chairman then discussed curriculum changes. After

Upon recommendation of the Chairman, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED ; To adopt the changes in the graduate 
curriculum as set forth in Document 
64-060 which is hereby attached to 
and made part of these minutes. 

The Chairman explained the difficulty certain students 
have run into who, being recipients of scholarships or fellowships, 
had experienced delays in receiving payments due them, and the 
need is created for short term non-interest loans to tide them over 
until receipt of their grant monies. Upon motion being duly made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve the 
granting of short term non-interest 
loans to graduate and foreign students 
and, further, that the appropriate 
officers of the University be authorized 
to transfer $5,000 from the Trust Fund 
Interest Account to establish said loan 
fund. 

The Chairman explained that the Faculty and Program of 
Study Committee had under advisement and consideration a proposal 
for the Environmental Science Department and that they will discuss 
this with the Provost prior to submitting a report to the Board. 
She also explained, that although no action was requested of the 
Board at this time, she wished to call their attention to the pro- 
posed policy on personnel procedures (Document 64-063) and the pro- 
posal in regard to assistant deans of Arts and Science positions 
(Document 64-O64) and stated that the latter proposal would be in- 
corporated into the budget documents to be submitted to the Board 
at a later date. 

The Chairman described certain difficulties experienced 
with the existing salary range for the position of Assistant Dean, 
U of M and recommended the new classification action proposed. 
Upon motion duly made and seconded, it was

operation of structures appropriate and provision for illumination. 
The lease would expire simultaneously with the lease executed for

project. 

(Bishop Weldon arrived at 1:45 p.m.) 

After general discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : WHEREAS The University of Massachusetts (the

684 of the Acts of 1963, be hereafter called 
the "Enabling Act") is hereby authorized by 
the Enabling Act, among other things to lease 
from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (the 
Commonwealth) such lands of the Commonwealth, 
or rights therein, as may be necessary for 
carrying out the provisions of the Enabling 
Act; and 

WHEREAS The Trustees (the Trustees) of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts (the University) are 
authorized, acting in the name and on behalf of 
the Commonwealth, among other things to lease to 
the Authority land owned by the Commonwealth in 
the towns of Amherst or Hadley or grant ease- 
ments, licenses or any other rights or privileges 
therein to the Authority; and

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

WHEREAS The Trustees acting pursuant to the 
Enabling Act, have authorized a written re- 
quest to be made to the Authority that the 
Authority, among other things construct, equip 
and furnish an outdoor event structure and re- 
lated facilities for the purposes provided in 
the Enabling Act; Now, Therefore 

BE IT RESOLVED That, pursuant to the Enabling 
Act the lease by the Commonwealth to the 
Authority of a parcel of land owned by the 
Commonwealth in the town of Hadley and the 
granting to the Authority of easements, licenses 
and other rights and privileges in such land, 
all as particularly described, and for the 
purposes recited, in the lease presented to this 
meeting, be and it hereby is approved; and that 
the Trustees or a majority thereof be and hereby 
are authorized, in the name and on behalf of the 
Commonwealth, to sign, acknowledge and deliver 
said lease in or substantially in the form pre- 
sented to this meeting and to cause the common 
seal of the University and of the Trustees to 
be affixed thereto. 

Trustee Pumphret reported for the Building Authority and 
stated that the Authority had opened bids on phase 1 (high-rise 
dormitories) and were extremely pleased that many of the bids were 
within the architect's estimate of cost. It was noted that the 
coordination of utility construction (provided by the Commonwealth) 
with the work of the building contractors should be improved to the 
greatest possible extent in future projects. 

Dean Soutter mentioned the work of Dr. Anthony Rourke 
and his staff in the hospital survey study. He introduced Dean 
Willard of the Kentucky Medical School to the Board and stated 
that the Kentucky Medical School is considered as a model insti- 
tution for new schools in the nation. 

Dr. Willard noted that site is an important long-range 
decision in the establishment of medical schools. Many factors, 
the whole constellation of medical services and training, must be 
taken into account in arriving at basic decisions. Medical re- 
search, for example, which is an integral function of medical 
training today, is progressing at some very basic levels in the 
life sciences. Another important function of medical schools today 
is professional refresher training for medical practitioners and 
health workers. New areas of special research and experimentation 
are necessary to distinguish a first-rate medical program, and such 
programs include management efficiency, cost reduction and staffing 
patterns, as well as life sciences research. Such broad scale re- 
search activity can be supported in a most effective fashion by 
allied research efforts at University campuses.

(Trustee Fox left at 2:05 p.m.) 

Another important factor, stated Dr. Willard, with which 
some medical schools have had unfortunate experience is attempting 
to divide responsibility "between a teaching hospital and a 
community service hospital. While cooperative arrangements are 
possible and desirable under certain circumstances, divided 
responsibility in the teaching unit is a more serious matter in 
terms of effective operation and training. 

Dr. Willard indicated the relatively extended time re- 
quired to bring a medical school into full-scale operation from the 
time when it is first authorized and financed. He noted that 
medical training, research and medical service must be developed 
concurrently although some staging or phasing of programs is 
inevitable. He mentioned that most of the exciting research at his 
institution is being done in cooperation with allied university 
research units such as the engineering school, psychology and 
sociology departments, and the basic life sciences departments. 

There was extended discussion and questions and answers 
from various members of the Board addressed to Dr. Willard. At 
the conclusion of the meeting, Chairman Healey thanked Dr. Willard 
and Dean Soutter for their informative presentation. 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned 
at 3:28 p.m.

Building Authority being held simultaneously with the Board meet- 
ing, it was unanimously agreed that the agenda be revised to take 
up those matters of most importance to the mutual business of the 
Board and the Authority. 

At the request of the Chairman, Mr. Broadhurst, bond 
counsel of the Building Authority, explained the proposed Manage- 
ment and Services Agreement in connection with the Dining Hall 
project. He noted that the bids received on this project were 
lower than had been originally estimated. He pointed out that the 
proposed Agreement differs from earlier agreements in two basic 
respects: (l) the identifying of revenues of the Building Authority 
and (2) the appropriate disposal of said revenues. He stated that 
the University would render an accounting to the Authority on the 
fiscal operation of the Dining Hall according to the requirements 
of the Agreement. After general discussion, it was moved,

Chairman Haigis informed the Board that it is his under- 
standing that a legal suit is pending in regard to the Paresky 
property. He noted that the apparent unwillingness of 
Mrs. Paresky to accept the $30,000 offer of settlement hinges upon 
her desire to have an additional $2,4-00 as interest on the settle- 
ment price . 

The Chairman indicated that at a future meeting, he would 
desire to discuss at further length the report from Stone & Webster 
in regard to utilities for University buildings. He also noted the 
President had sent a letter to the Building Authority requesting 
that in the matter of brick facing for new buildings, an endeavor 
be made to maintain colors and textures consonant with existing 
campus structures. It was pointed out that the Board has control 
of this matter at the time the Trustees act upon final plans and 
working drawings of such projects. 

The President explained that the recommendations in re- 
gard to the granting of degrees would involve 976 undergraduate 
candidates, and that with the addition of the candidates for 
graduate degrees, the total graduating classes would be in the 
vicinity of 1,100 students. On recommendation of the President, 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To award the appropriate Bachelor degrees 
to the persons listed in Document 64-077, 
as amended, which is hereby attached to 
and made part of these minutes. 

And it was further moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To award the appropriate Graduate degrees 
to the persons listed in Document 64-078, 
as amended, which is hereby attached to 
and made part of these minutes. 

The President reported on personnel appointments he had 
made, under authority from the Board, as contained in Document 
64-071 presented to the Board and called the attention of the 
Board to the recommended personnel actions and noted that these 
contained appointments of certain Assistant Deans and a candidate 
for tenure appointment. The President thereupon moved confirmation 
and approval of the personnel actions and said motion being 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve and adopt the tenure appointments 
and appointments as Assistant Deans as set 
forth in Document 64-071 presented to this 
meeting. 

The President recommended the approval of the classifica- 
tions as set forth in Document 64.-072. It was thereupon moved,

The President and the Treasurer spoke of the careful 
assessment of fiscal plans and how this review had led to the need 
for selected transfer actions which would be essential to keep 
certain educational programs moving forward to the next fiscal 
year. After general discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize transfers between subsidiary 
accounts as contained in Document 64-082,

MINUTES OF MEETING OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

July 2, 196^4, 1:00 p.m., Statler Hilton Hotel, Boston 

PRESENT : Trustee Boyden, President Lederle, Trustees Brown, 
Croce, Crowley, Emerson, Fox, Frechette, Haigis, 
Healey, Kiernan, Lyons, McNamara, Plimpton, Schuck, 
Solomon, Thompson, Troy, Weldon; Provost Tippo, 
Treasurer Johnson, Dean Redfem, Secretary McCartney 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the Chairman convened the meeting to 
order . 

Upon motion being duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the minutes of the meeting of the Board 
of Trustees of June 6, 1964, be approved. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, President Lederle pre- 
sented two new staff members, Provost Tippo and Secretary McCartney, 
to the members of the Board. 

Provost Tippo commented briefly on the progress of the 
University Press. He circulated a copy of "The Talkative President," 
edited by Professor Howard H. Quint, Head of the Department of 
History, and Robert H. Ferrell. The volume will be available to the 
public in September. 

The Provost circulated a single tabular copy of an AAUP 
Report showing that the University of Massachusetts ranked 82nd 
among American Universities in average salaries. The University had 
a rating of CC, whereas the highest rating is AA. The University is 
on the AAUP Roll of Honor, however, for the dramatic improvement in 
our relative standing effected by the salary increases of last 
winter . 

President Lederle commented that we do have a serious 
salary problem. He indicated that copies of the AAUP's statistics 
would be sent to the Board. 

The President noted that a bill establishing the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts/Boston had gone through the Legislature and 
had been signed by the Governor. He stated that a Task Force had 
been appointed to pinpoint and identify problems related to 
establishment of the University's Boston center, so that initial 
classes may get underway in September, 1965. 

The 1MB Task Force consists of Dr. Leo Redfern, chairman; 
Donald Cadigan, Dr. William Venman and Robert H. Brand. It is 
planned to bring the University Deans and faculty into consultation 
once the procedural problems have been identified. The President 
paid warm tribute to Trustee Fox for his devoted and effective

service in steering the bill through legislative and executive 
channels. The Task Force will identify problems in the area of 
curriculum, library, personnel needs and site determination. The 
President indicated that no budget would be proposed for the Boston 
center before December, 196-4 . The philosophy is to provide a 
quality institution which eventually, like UCLA, may grow to 20,000 
or 25,000 students. The program is to start with 1,000 students the 
first year, adding an additional 1,000 each year. Extension and 
evening courses will be developed as student interest requires. 
Special emphasis may be placed upon urban studies and certain other 
programs that will lend uniqueness. The Center may be headed 
eventually by a vice-president or a chancellor once it achieves 
appropriate size. 

The President added that quick action was needed to 
determine a site, and that a downtown office building might be used 
temporarily. 

General discussion followed on (1) the need to establish 
the basic character of the University of Massachusetts/Boston dur- 
ing its first year of operation; (2) the possibility of handling a 
basic science requirement in a temporary building or through the 
rental of laboratory space; (3) involving the chairmen of key Board 
committees in UMB Task Force planning; and (4) enabling President 
Lederle to expend funds for the planning and establishment of the 
University of Massachusetts/Boston. 

Upon motion being duly made and seconded, it was 
unanimously 

VOTED : That the Chairmen of appropriate committees of 
the Board of Trustees, or their designees, 
shall be invited to attend meetings of the Task 
Force appointed by the President to identify 
problems related to the establishment of the 
University of Massachusetts/Boston. 

After further brief discussion, and upon motion being 
duly made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That, in accordance with the provisions of 
Chapter 562 of the Acts of 1964, entitled 
"An Act Providing for the Establishment of 
the University of Massachusetts Facilities 
in or in the vicinity of the City of Boston," 
and the urgent need to provide public edu- 
cational opportunities of high quality at a 
law cost on a commuting basis in U of M 
courses for a planned 1,000 students by 
September, 1965, that the President be, and 
he hereby is, authorized to take emergency 
action within the $200,000 appropriated in 
Item 1350-39 to study, plan, formulate and 
establish the University of Massachusetts/ 
Boston; and to do all things provided for 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

therein, reporting the same to the Trustees; 
provided that no commitment for a site shall 
be made without the prior approval of the 
Trustees, and provided further that no new 
permanent professional staff shall he employed 
except in accordance with established Trustee 
policy. 

Discussion next turned briefly to the Labor Relations 
Center to be established on the campus in Amherst. Upon motion 
being duly made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To authorize the President between the date 
of this meeting, and the date of the 
September meeting of the Board to expend 
funds as necessary to engage the personnel 
required to implement the establishment of 
the Center, in accordance with the purposes 
and objectives of its program. 

The Chairman invited the President to present a brief 
status report on discussions held with members of the Willis Com- 
mission on the "Coordination of Higher Education in Massachusetts." 

President Lederle stated that a viable system was needed 
involving a concept of differentiation of functions as between the 
various components in the state system of public higher education. 
These were listed as: 

University of Massachusetts with branches 
State Colleges 
Community Colleges 
Technological Institutes 

The University recognizes the need for change and evolution 
of a dynamic system of higher education. The University has made it 
clear that if the technological institutes should evolve toward 
multi-purpose institutions not restricted to technical and scientific 
training or aspire to offering doctoral work they should come under 
the University. A Community College might conceivably grow into a 
State College under the State College system. Likewise should a 
State College develop to University status, it could become part of 
the University. 

With respect to the matter of capital outlay and oper- 
ational request budgets, the President stated that institutional 
budgets might clear a central coordinating board to determine 
whether they represent wise and efficient expenditure of public 
funds. He took a firm position that individual budgets of the 
component parts of the system should be seen and be evaluated 
by the Legislature.

Questions were raised concerning the nature of the pro- 
posed Coordinating Board, and it was observed that the historical 
pattern here was poor in the nation as a whole, because such boards 
tend to become a "dead hand," stultifying needed growth and expansior 
in key areas of public higher education. Some possibilities of Co- 
ordinating Board composition and structure were outlined by the 
President, following which Trustee Kiernan stated that the aim of 
the Coordinating Board would be: 

First, to strengthen the individual institutions; 

Secondly, to strengthen the entire system of public 
higher education in the Commonwealth. 

It was reported to the Board of Trustees that the Com- 
mittee on Finance had received a recommendation from the firm of 
Standish, Ayer & McKay, Inc., investment counselors, to sell 
presently held shares of American Tobacco and Schering Corporation, 
now held in the University of Massachusetts Endowment Fund, and to 
buy U. S. Treasury Bonds and G.M.A.C. debs. 

After brief discussion, and upon motion being duly made 
and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer, Kenneth W. 
Johnson, to sell: 

100 shares American Tobacco common 
100 shares Schering common 

and to buy for the Endowment Fund: 

30,000 U. S. Treasury Bonds 4-i 

8/15/92-87 
20,000 G.M.A.C. debentures 5 5/8

Chairman Healey reported to the Board that since the last 
meeting of the Committee certain funds have been received by the 
University and established on the books as Endowment Funds by ad- 
ministrative direction. He requested Board approval of this action 
and, after brief discussion, it was duly moved, seconded, and 
unanimously 

VOTED : That the appropriate officers of the Uni- 
versity are authorized to establish the 
Stockbridge School Alumni Fund as an 
Endowment Fund, and that it be retroactive 
to May 25, 1963 to conform with accounting 
records .

in receipt of a request from the University of Massachusetts Founda- 
tion, Inc. to make payment due to the Foundation in July, 1964, on 
funds advanced by the Foundation for National Defense Education Act 
loans. 

After brief discussion, it was duly moved, seconded and 
unanimously

tion on funds advanced to the University to

comments on this Report. (Document 65-004) 

Chairman Healey reported to the Board of Trustees that 
the Ad Hoc Committee on the Medical School had not yet evolved any 
single view on recommendation of site. He stated that it would save 
the Board time in considering this matter if the Ad Hoc Committee

the full Board of Trustees. Upon motion being duly made and

Committee Chairman Haigis presented to t he Board of 
Trustees the proposed capital outlay program priority list for 
fiscal year 1966 (June, 1965) and fiscal year 1967 (June, 1966). 
This was deferred business from the Board meeting of June 6. It 
was pointed out that the concept of campus requirements may change 
in the period covered by the program, and that the list should not 
be considered absolute. 

At the invitation of Chairman Boyden, the Dean of Ad- 
ministration, Dr. Leo F. Redfern, gave a brief elaboration of the 
need for a Continuing Education Center (Item 5 in the priority list 
for capital projects, fiscal year 1966) . 

Dean Redfern gave a brief history of the conference pro- 
gram on the campus, noting that it was characterized principally 
by a shortage of space. He indicated also that the Bureaus and 
Institutes program as a public service is increasing its activity 
and that the Willis Commission may call for still more activity in 
this area. He noted that the proposed Continuing Education Center 
would accommodate 

1. Continuing Education 

2. The Instructional Program in Hotel Management 
and Food Service Management 

3. Supplement the Resources of the Student Union 

Dean Redfern stated that a side benefit of the facility 
would be accommodations for approximately 200 persons visiting the 
campus. This phase of the operation would represent a laboratory 
for Hotel Management students . 

Trustee Lyons suggested planning now for a Communications 
Center as the core unit for future University Extension activity. 

Provost Tippo requested that the Library design appropri- 
ation of $200,000 (Item #11 under proposed Capital Outlay for Fiscal 
Year 1967) be shifted to priority Item #1 for fiscal year 1966. He: 
indicated that only three years of shelf space remain in Goodell 
Library, and that we should have one million volumes by 1970. 

Treasurer Johnson stated that It was not unusual to carry 
over into future capital outlay requests items not acted upon by 
the Legislature in the prior year. These may be added to the list 
already proposed for 1966 and 1967. The main " carry-over' 1 is 
expected to be the Research Center.

President Lederle reported that site work for the Stadium 
and the utility work for the dormitories was being conducted on 
state contract, and that continual discussions were being maintained 
with the Bureaiof Building Construction to keep both projects moving 
The Stadium is now out to bid. It is still touch and go whether

of appropriation item 8065-35-00 of Chapter 640 of the Acts of 1964

Dean Redfern, Treasurer Johnson,

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order. 

In the absence of the Chairman of the Board, His 
Excellency Endicott Peabody, Governor of the Commonwealth, was 
designated by acclamation as Chairman pro tern. 

Upon motion duly made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees of September 9, 1964 
be approved. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, President Lederle 
discussed the following items: 

1. A meeting of the Ad Hoc Committee of the Board of 
Trustees to Work with the Boston Task Force will 
be called on November 5 with representatives of 
Heller Associates for the purpose of reviewing 
progress on investigation of permanent and 
temporary sites for the location of the University 
of Massachusetts/Boston. The President stated 
that a fairly firm recommendation was expected at 
the meeting of November 5, with the possibility 
that a definite site decision might be determined 
at the meeting of the full Board of Trustees on 
November 19. The President emphasized that Heller 
Associates were not charged with making the long- 
range determinations on development of University 
of Massachusetts/Boston, since such a study would 
require many months. In response to a question, 
the President stated that the educational philosophy 
of the UM/Boston i s determined by the Board of 
Trustees, the Administration and appropriate 
Committees of the Faculty. The Heller study is 
directed chiefly toward providing appropriate 
facilities so that the University may meet its 
obligation to get underway with programs at UM/ 
Boston by September of 1965.

of high-rise dormitories in Project 6, discussion developed con- 
cerning room rental charges v/hich would be appropriate to amortize 
Project 6 residence halls in terms of revised estimates of cost. 

Attorney Broadhurst pointed out that Project 6 
dormitories would finance adequately at the $300 rental figure,

today, but that the problem may have to be faced and the Trustees 
were urged to think about it.

ing." Further, the inspecting team indicated 
that they consider the department to be one of 
the best they had inspected. In particular, 
they commented on the excellent support provided 
to the department by the University Administra- 
tion and faculty, a fact conveyed in the final 
report to Air University and Headquarters, United

2. The President reported that two University 
staff members were awarded gold medals and 
$1,000 cash awards for outstanding contri- 
butions to their fields. 

Receiving the awards from the Massachusetts 
Society for Promoting Agriculture were 
Dr. Franklin W. Southwick, Head of the newly- 
formed Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, 
and Warren D. Whitcomb, Entomologist Emeritus 
at the University's Waltham Field Station. 

3. Dr. Lederle reported on recent discussions he 
had held with Deputy Commissioner for Fiscal 
Affairs Shepard, indicating that the outlook 
for the University's budget currently up for 
legislative consideration, was not entirely 
clear, but that the University had received 

a sympathetic hearing. 

4. More than a score of western Massachusetts 
legislators visited the campus on January 8 
for a very successful briefing session on 
University master planning and development, 
together with presentation of a rationale for 
certain bills which the University has intro- 
duced in the present legislature. The session 
concluded with dinner in the new South Dining 
Commons, and attendance at the UMass-Vermont 
basketball game. 

5. The President stated that he had seen a draft 
of specific legislation designed to implement 
the so-called Willis-Harrington Commission Re- 
port (Massachusetts Education Study). He in- 
dicated that the bill needed much more work to 
put it into proper shape to achieve the in- 
tended result. The President indicated that 
the University's basic posture was that the 
report is generally a good one. However, we 
take exception to certain details. He re- 
ported that he would appear that evening on 
Channel 2, WGBH-TV to discuss aspects of the 
Report with a panel including President Meier 
of Salem State College, Representative 
Wojtkowski of Pittsfield, etc. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, Mr. Healey reported 
with respect to a recommendation on a site for the Medical School, 
that the Ad Hoc Committee on the Medical School felt it needed 
further consultant service to present the case for an urban loca- 
tion, and that a medical expert would not be involved, but rather 
management consultant firms such as:

mately one month.

At the invitation of the Chairman, President Lederle 
commented briefly on the fact that a number of colleges of agri- 
culture throughout the nation have recently become involved in 
name changes to better describe the more comprehensive forms of 
training in which they were currently engaged. However, although 
this matter has been under study for more than a year on the campus 
in Amherst, no consensus was obtained as to an appropriate change 
of name. The President, therefore, said he would not recommend a 
name change. The name College of Agriculture will be retained. 

The President commented briefly on two items which had 
appeared recently in national publications. US NEWS and WORLD 
REPORT ran an article in its issue of February 1, 1965 outlining 
problems of colleges and universities in coping with mushrooming 
enrollments. The University of Massachusetts had the lead position. 
TIME magazine for January 29, 1965 ran a picture (which was also 
carried across the nation in dozens of newspapers) showing several 
hundred of our students taking examinations in Boyden gymnasium.

spect to the Harrington-Willis Study 
Commission Report: 

RESOLUTION 

After due consideration of the proposals contained in 
Summary Report of the Special Commission Relative to Improving and 
Extending Educational Facilities in the Commonwealth (Harrington- 
Willis Study Commission Report), the Board of Trustees of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts herewith places itself on record as firmly 
endorsing the general recommendations of the report as we under- 
stand them, dealing with higher education on the basis that its 
implementation represents an historic opportunity that would achiev^ 
the following: 

1. Properly define the roles of existing segments of 
the Commonwealth's higher education enterprise as: 

a. a single University of Massachusetts, 
with branch centers, 

b. a state college system, 

c. a community college system and 

d. two technological institutes. 

2. Effect the most economic and most systematic viable 
system to cope with enormous expansion of demand for 

;her educational opportunity by the Massachusetts 
college-age population in the years ahead. 

3. Provide sufficient review and coordination of all 
institutions of higher education and their programs 
to assiire orderly growth and development without 
wasteful overlap and duplication and without im- 
posing a system of rigid controls that would destroy

a vote. 

A telegram from the Honorable John F. Collins, mayor of 
the City of Boston, was read to the Board. This expressed pleasure 
that the University had found a location through the rental of 
downtown office space, and expressed reservations concerning the 
purchase of downtown real estate, thereby removing property from 
the tax rolls. A copy of this telegram (Document 65-047 is hereby 
attached to and made a part of these minutes.

Force, by Mr. Broadhurst and by Treasurer Johnson.

I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



In "brief introductory remarks, Dr. Wilsey stressed that 
the firm of Booz, Allen and Hamilton was providing a series of 
suggestions on objectives and criteria which were intended to be 
informative and instructive. Final decisions on objectives and sit£ 
location would and properly should be made by the Board of Trustees 
Dr. Wilsey also mentioned that an AAMC Report on all of medical 
education will soon be brought forth which should prove to be of 
interest to the Board. He then proceeded to summarize highlights 
of the Booz, Allen and Hamilton Report entitled "Objectives and 
Criteria for Location of the Medical School, " copies of which had 
been distributed to members of the Board. The Report, and 
Mr. Wilsey' s summary comments relating to it, are tentative, 
suggestive rather than final, and are classified confidential. 

Following the summary presentation, and a brief question 
period, and upon motion duly made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To authorize the firm of Booz, Allen 
and Hamilton, Inc. to proceed with 
analysis of the great mass of statistical 
data on hand and to accumulate any

ministrative officers to be followed by a meeting with student 
leaders. 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:50 p.m.

been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being

10:15 a.m. 

Upon motion being made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meetings 
of the Board of Trustees held on March 
23 and March 31, 1965. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, President Lederle 
commented on several items as follows: 

1. The Massachusetts Crime Commission 

The President reminded the Board that a 
communication sent from his office to Chairman 
Gardner of the Massachusetts Crime Commission 
had been circulated to the Trustees. He then 
read a communication in reply from Chairman 
Gardner which indicated in substance that the 
University of Massachusetts would not be 
mentioned in the final report of the Commission, 
and that this conclusion was reached during re- 
view of the preliminary draft of the report 
long before this draft was covered prematurely 
in the press. Copies of Mr. Gardner's letter 
were distributed to the Trustees. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Communication from the Crime Commission 
expressed regret that a newspaper had used pre- 
maturely and in unauthorized manner preliminary- 
data of the Commission's report which was then 
widely repeated by other newspapers. It was 
noted that criticism of the University had been 
based on the erroneous assumption that the Uni- 
versity would be mentioned in the final report. 

2. Dedication of Ralph C. Mahar Auditorium 

The President noted that the University had 
had a highly successful dedication of the Ralph 
C. Mahar Auditorium on Sunday, April 25. Many 
distinguished guests, including friends of 
Mrs. Mahar were present. Principal speakers 
were the Honorable Sumner Whittier, former 
Lieutenant Governor of the Commonwealth, and 
former Senate President John E. Powers. Copies 
of the dedication program were distributed to 
the Trustees. 

3. Status Report: UM/Boston Bill 

The President reported that the bill 
authorizing the lease/purchase of the Boston 
Consolidated Gas Company Building had not yet 
been passed by the Legislature, It was pre- 
sented to the General Court on March 22. The 
President reported that various amendments had 
been attached to the bill in the Senate Ways 
and Means Committee, one of which extended the 
purchase date deadline to February, 1966. He 
noted that Monday, May 3, 1965 is the absolute 
deadline for execution of a lease agreement as 
far as the Boston Consolidated Gas Company is 
concerned. The legislative leadership has been 
so advised; also that two-thirds of the faculty 
for UM/Boston have been recruited; also, that 
more than 700 students have already been ad- 
mitted. It is clear, that the University and 
the Commonwealth are launched irreversibly on 
a solid educational program in Boston. 

Chairman Troy presented a report of the Committee on 
Faculty and Program of Study. After brief discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the programs and courses de- 
tailed in Document 65-033, which docu- 
ment is attached to and herewith made a 
part of these minutes.

VOTED : To authorize the Chairman of the Board 
of Trustees to designate one or more 
representatives from the Board to attend 
the meeting of the Association of Govern- 
ing Boards at Williamsburg, Virginia, 
May 17-18. 

The President reported on the current status of legisla- 
tion to implement recommendations of the Willis Report. He in- 
dicated that the University was opposed to amendments which would 
cripple the intent of the original report. The University and 
State and Community Colleges wish: 

a. Trustee representation on the proposed 
Board of Higher Education. 

b. Identification of the University of 
Massachusetts as the sole state Univer- 
sity of the Commonwealth. 

The President also expressed the view that language in 
the current bill (H 36OO) is so broadly written with respect to the 
mandate of the Board of Higher Education that the door appears left 
open for a far greater exercise of authority than had been con- 
templated by the Willis Commission — almost at the level of a 
Super Board. He indicated that the University desires the Board 
of Higher Education to have ample flexibility to achieve its re- 
search and review responsibilities, but not so much authority as 
to give it the capability of destroying the whole concept of the 
original master plan. 

The President indicated that H 36OO may not move as 
quickly through the Legislature as originally anticipated. 

Discussion followed between members of the Board concern- 
ing agreement on principles which the University could not in 
conscience compromise in contrast with details of procedure of no 
great significance which might be compromised in the interest of 
implementing the Willis Report. 

In accordance with provisions of Section 32A of Chapter 
75 of the General Laws, and upon motion having been duly made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To appoint the following University 
employees as police officers of the 
University of Massachusetts, such

At the invitation of the Chairman, Provost Tippo re- 
ported on the important and difficult job of recruiting some 270 
new faculty members during the winter and spring of 1965. Of this 
total, 134 positions are to be filled for Ul^/Amherst; 66 positions 
become available through retirement, sabbaticals, leaves and 
resignations; 70 positions are to be filled for UM/Bcston. 

The Provost indicated that the job was approximately two- 
thirds completed, with an excellent selection of faculty. Approxi- 
mately a week or ten days remain in which to complete the job. 

The Provost paid a high compliment to the work of Pro- 
fessors Gagnon and Gentile; also Dean Moyer Hunsberger of the 
College of Arts and Sciences in achieving the notable progress to 
date. 

By comparison, the Provost cited the example of a state 
college in California where some 1300 faculty members had been 
searched for during recent months with a success factor of only 
26%, with the result that Governor Brown requested of the legisla- 
ture an increase of 10% in faculty salaries to assist in recruitmen 
in California. 

Approximately 32,000 vacancies exist nation-wide in 
hipher education this year, with only 7,000 Ph.D's in the market 
to fill them — or four positions for every Ph.D. available.

Mr. Healey stated that the operating fund at interest is 
now up to a peak of approximately three million dollars. Most in- 
vestments in savings banks are at $$>. He stated that the 
Committee on Finance, in consultation with Standish, Ayer & Wood, 
Inc. had reviewed both the operating and endowment funds and that 
these are in reasonable shape. 

Investment counsel, the Chairman reported, had called for 
some long-term investment in government treasuries, in the 
Operating Fund; but the committee did not accept this recommenda- 
tion nor did Standish, Ayer & Wood, Inc. press their recommenda- 
tion. 

The Chairman reported to the Board that the Committee on

Report 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

On advice of investment counsel in their report of April 
21, 1965, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Fairfield County 
Trust Company sale of the following 
securities from the George M. Codding 
estate: 

$10,000 U.S. Treas. 2 1/2 6/15/72 
7,000 U.S. Treas. 4 8/15/70

119 Bank of America 
100 Bethlehem Steel 

42 Fall River National 

120 Ingersoll Rand 
50 Kennecott Copper 
80 R. J. Reynolds Tob. 

It was further 

VOTED : To authorize the Fairfield County Trust 
Company to purchase: 

250 shares Continental Insurance 

150 shares Fireman's Fund Insurance 

100 shares First National Bank of Boston 

200 Gulf Oil Corporation 

$35,000 U.S. Treasury 4 1/8-2/5/74. 

The Chairman next reported on new endowments that had 
been received since the last meeting of the Committee. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the endowment funds listed in 
Document 65-057 be established on 
the records of the University, and 
that this document be attached to 
and made a part of these minutes. 

Chairman Healey gave his personal assurance as Chairman 
of the Committee on Finance that the fiscal affairs of the Uni- 
versity are in good order and are being properly managed. He 
commented that any audit report has some suggestions for "tightening 
up" routine procedures. One Trustee commented that the auditor's 
report appeared to contain a series of "small criticisms." There 
was a further query whether the University was required to follow 
recommendations of the auditor. 

The Treasurer responded that the Commonwealth has ex- 
tremely rigid rules and regulations that were not made with Educa- 
tion in mind. On the other hand, because of the unique 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



characteristics of higher education, the University has fiscal 
autonomy. The result is, in many instances, that so-called "rules 
of thumb" adopted for non-academic governmental agencies fail to 
fit the situation. Auditors, used to routine procedures, then 
query the University as to why our policies are different. 
Actually University operations have checked out to the penny; nor 
are University accounting procedures unusual for an academic in- 
stitution. If the auditor expects action to be taken, he usually 
directs his comments to a specific individual. 

The Treasurer noted that Document 65-058 entitled 
"Report of the Treasurer on Notes and Comments, State Audit Report, 
July 1, 1963 to June 30, 1964, " had been submitted and was 
attached to and made part of the Committee on Finance report. 

The Treasurer noted that of 28 comments in the Auditor's 
Report, 14 are informative or statistical with no action 
recommended by the Auditor; 11 corrective actions have been taken; 
3 are policy questions — in which the University is not in agree- 
ment with the Auditor's position. 

With reference to item 2 of the Treasurer's report, 
"Automobile Registration Fees," it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Treasurer be authorized to 
return to the State Treasurer the 
balance shown in the Auditor's Re- 
port on June 30, 1964, schedule XXVI, 
p. S41, said balance amounting to 
$6,681.31, which sum represents the 
balance of automobile registration fees 
on the date that the opinion of the 
Attorney General was received. 

The Treasurer noted that, as of July 1, 1964, on advice 
of legal counsel, the system was changed so that fees were no 
longer assessed. Instead, identification stickers and booklets 
containing the regulations are now sold as items of merchandise at 
the University Store. 

It was noted that the Committee on Finance had commended 
the Treasurer on the excellent state of fiscal affairs in the Uni- 
versity as evidenced by the Auditor's Report. 

The question of liability insurance for University 
personnel operating motor vehicles has been under continuous re- 
view by the Committee on Finance for some time. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the policy be established of se- 
curing appropriate liability insurance 

covering University personnel in the 
operation of state-owned vehicles on 
official business.

The United States Agency for International Development 
has requested that President and Mrs. Lederle be present at the 
official dedication of the Tororo Girls' School in Uganda, which 
school has been built under supervision of the University of Massa- 
chusetts under contract with the Agency for International De- 
velopment. The U. S. Ambassador to Uganda and high officials of 
the country will be among those present at the dedication. This 
contract also provides for the administration and operation of this 
school for the next several years. After brief discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That President and Mrs. Lederle be 
encouraged to accept the invitation 
from the Director of the United States 
Agency for International Development

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

On further recommendation of the Treasurer concerning use 
of free balances in certain accounts as needed for the support of 
the Graduate School for the payment of stipends for graduate 
assistants, as detailed in Document 65-060, which document is here- 
by attached to and made a part of these minutes, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the use of free balances in 
the accounts detailed in Document 65-060 
for the support of the Graduate School 
for payment of stipends for graduate 
assistants. 

Treasurer Johnson reported that, for some time, there had 
been under discussion by representatives of the Four Colleges the 
possibility of forming a Four College Corporation to facilitate 
some of the cooperative programs between the four institutions. 
Amherst College took the initiative in this, in having their legal 
counsel, Ropes and Gray, prepare a proposed charter and by-laws 
for such a corporation. This proposal has been reviewed by the 
University's legal counsel and found to be in order. The details 
of this proposal are set forth in Document 65-061, which document 
is herewith attached to and made a part of these minutes. 

The matter was held over by the Committee on Finance to 
give everyone ample opportunity to study the question and it will 
be brought up at the next Board meeting. 

Dr. H. Lawrence Wilsey, Mr. M. W. Hamilt and Mr. Rockwell 
Schulz of the firm of Booz, Allen & Hamilton were admitted to the 
meeting. A report of progress was presented under the direction of 
Dr. Wilsey, who stated that a review had been made of all informa- 
tion already collected and that much new information had been pro- 
cured during the last three weeks. 

Visits had been made to Boston, Worcester, Springfield 
and Amherst. Discussions were held with the Surgeon-General and 
the Deputy Surgeon-General of the United States; also with heads 
of the three existing medical schools in Massachusetts who were 
consulted along with the Massachusetts Medical Society and the 
Departments of Public Health and Public Welfare. Material was also 
reviewed from the Bureau of Government Research at the University 
of Massachusetts from the Association of American Medical Colleges. 

Dr. Wilsey indicated that the procedure for the day 
would be to go through an outline of the final report. He indi- 
cated that this was in rough draft form, and would need to be re- 
fined considerably. The final report will consist of nine 
separate chapters together with a series of important appendices.

There followed extended discussion on the draft outline 
of the final report, together with consideration of "model

Booz, Allen & Hamilton, Inc. agreed to the following 
procedures to be followed prior to the May 7 meeting of the Board 
of Trustees: 

1. To revise the preliminary criteria and objectives 
in the light of comment and suggestions made by 
Trustees at the meetings of March 31 and April 26 
and to circulate these revisions to the Board of 
Trustees. 

2. To circulate immediately a questionnaire together 
with reply envelope to members of the Board of 
Trustees to gain their views on how various 
criteria should be weighted. 

3. To examine the revised and weighted criteria and 
objectives carefully at the meeting of May 7 in 
order to determine areas of agreement, after which 
Booz, Allen & Hamilton will apply these agreed 
upon criteria to their findings and present to the 
Board their evaluation as objectively as the data 
permits. 

The meeting was adjourned at 4:05 p.m.

MINUTES OF MEETING OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

June 4., 1965, 10:00 a.m., University of Massachusetts/Boston 
Recessed to Statler Hilton Hotel at 12:30 p.m. 

PRESENT : Chairman Boyden, President Lederle; Trustees 
Brown, Croce, Crowley, Emerson, Frechette, 
Gordon, Haigis, Healey, Lyons, Maginnis, 
McNamara, Plimpton, Pumphret, Rowland, 
Solomon, Thompson, Troy and Weldon; Provost 
Tippo, Treasurer Johnson, Secretary McCartney 



PRESENT BY 
INVITATION: 



Dr. H. Lawrence Wilsey, Mr. M. W. Hamilt 
of Booz, Allen & Hamilton, Inc.; Dean 
Soutter of the Medical School. 



The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order at 
10:15 a.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
the Board of Trustees held on May 7, 1965. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, President Lederle 
commented on recent cuts made by the House Ways and Means Committee 
in the proposed budget of the University. He termed these cuts, 
if permanent, unrealistic. Noting a statement in a recent news- 
paper article that the University had diverted funds under fiscal 
autonomy and had taken 1,000 less students than it was capable of 
accommodating last year he said, this misinformation may have 
misled the Committee. This statement, he added, was completely 
erroneous. Actually funds were transferred from 01 to 03 accounts 
in order to help take close to 1,000 additional students last year. 
Besides, the University took 180 swing-shift students in the 
summer, 178 of whom returned for second semester after staying out 
during the fall term. 

The President reported that no funds had been appropriated 
to date for UM/Boston. Funds requested for the Medical School had 
been cut from $318,000 to $100,000. 

Noting recent press reports critical of fiscal autonomy, 
the President stressed that the University had achieved its present 
rate of progress and development only because of fiscal autonomy. 
It is necessary continually to tell the story of why it is crucial, 
for in a democracy misinformation must be constantly overcome by 
facts .

At the invitation of the Chairman, Provost Tippo commented 
on personnel actions. He reported that, at UM/Boston, we were with- 
in 10 positions of quota; in Amherst, approximately 25 positions 
remain to be filled. 

The Provost called the attention of the Board to the

Minutes of

At the request of the Chairman, Treasurer Johnson

are now out, that the language laboratory equipment order has been 
placed, that main renovation construction work will be going out 
to bid next week and that the University will be "in business" on 
the opening date next fall for UM/Boston. 

Trustee Emerson read an excerpt from the minutes of the 
meeting of the Board of Trustees while in executive session on 
March 5, 1965 as follows: 

"Bishop Weldon expressed concern that the 
Springfield newspapers seem to be getting in- 
formation and material on deliberations of the 
Board of Trustees while in executive session 
which they should not be getting. He urged 
the Board to take action in this matter. 
After brief discussion, and without vote, it 
was agreed by all Board members present that 
future queries on the Medical School should 
be referred to the President of the University 
and that no statements would be made without

SPECIAL MEETING OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

June 11, 1965, 10:30 a.m., North Dining Commons, U of M, Amherst 

PRESENT : Chairman Boyden, President Lederle;

PRESENT BY 

INVITATION : Dr. H. Lawrence Wilsey and Dr. Milton W. 

Hamilt of Booz, Allen & Hamilton, Inc.; 

Dean Lamar Soutter of the Medical School. 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Chairman at 10:50 a.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees held on June 4, 1965. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To go into Executive Session for the purpose 
of discussing individuals and procedures. 

After brief discussion, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To come out of Executive Session for the 
purpose of proceeding with Item 3 on the 
agenda, "Discussion of the University of 
Massachusetts Medical School", in the 
presence of the public and the press. 

The Chairman introduced Dr. H. Lawrence Wilsey and 
Dr. Milton W. Hamilt of the firm of Booz, Allen & Hamilton, Inc. 
It was pointed out that the Trustees had received Volume II of the 
consulting firm's report entitled "Evaluation of Possible Sites for 
the University of Massachusetts Medical School." The Chairman in- 
vited questions from members of the Board to be directed to Messrs. 
Hamilt and Wilsey. 

There followed an extended series of questions directed 
to the Booz, Allen and Hamilton, Inc. consultants from members of 
the Board. Queries ranged over the various criteria adopted by the 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Board of Trustees for determining a site location for the Medical 
School and the evaluations placed upon these criteria by the 
consulting firm. 

Several Trustees noted discrepancies in the report. Dr. 
Wilsey responded that it had been emphasized at a previous meeting 
that the text in the hands of the Board members was a rough draft. 
He indicated that all appropriate corrections would be made in the 
final report. 

Trustee Weldon wished to have it placed on the record 
that the population figure available to a Springfield site detailed 
in the report had not included figures from the state of Connecticut 
in areas reasonably adjacent to Springfield. 

Dr. Wilsey indicated in response to a question that the 
firm of Booz, Allen and Hamilton, Inc. had worked on a recent 
report submitted to the executive council of the Association of 
American Medical Colleges authored by Lowell T. Coggeshall, M.D. 
This report had been distributed to the Board of Trustees at a 
previous meeting. 

As the question period moved past the normal lunch hour, 
it was moved and seconded that a vote be taken to determine the 
location of the University Medical School. 

Trustee Sweig then introduced two letters addressed to 
him personally opposing the location of medical schools on uni- 
versity campuses as follows: 

1. From Admiral Kenney, former Surgeon General of the 
U.S. Navy 

2. From Lieutenant General Heaton, Surgeon General of 
the U.S. Army 

Trustee Plimpton responded that the Surgeon General of 
the United States has a different view and believes that medical 
schools should be located at a university in conjunction with the 
university campus. He added that Dr. Paul Dudley V/hite shares this 
view. He called for an expression of opinion from the President, 
the Provost and from Dean Soutter. 

Trustee Crowley called for full discussion by all members 
of the Board of Trustees (in addition to the questioning of the 
consultants present) before a vote was taken.

The opinion was expressed that everyone had been heard

On the grounds that one member of the Board of Trustees 
present had to leave, and that a vote should properly be taken

before his departure, Trustee Healey called for the vote.

the Board's vote on procedure taken at the meeting of June 4.

Under the terms of procedure agreed upon by vote of the 
Board of Trustees at the meeting of June 4, 1965, the location

the Chairman at 10:40 a.m. 

President Lederle was invited by the Chairman to present 
comments. He deferred initially to Treasurer Johnson who informed 
the Trustees that his office had been informed by the Attorney 
General's office that additional legislation would be required in 
the future for land takings. Past procedures permitted such 
takings on the basis of appropriations only. As of June 11, the 
Attorney General stated that special legislation would be required 
in order to carry out the will of the Board of Trustees with re- 
spect to the Winkler property. 

The President advised the Board that he and Mrs. Lederle 
would depart on Monday, June 14, with Dean Purvis of the School of 
Education to participate in dedication exercises of the Tororo 
Girls School in Uganda. 

Brief discussion followed concerning a move by Senator 
Burke to withdraw fiscal autonomy from the University and the State 
Colleges . 

Chairman Boyden commented on the importance of fiscal 
autonomy to the integrity and welfare of the University. 

Discussion followed on the question of proceeding to de- 
termine a site for the Medical School in the City of Worcester. 
It was indicated that this matter should be handled by the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds. 

Chairman Boyden read a letter from the Governor's 
Council inviting the Board of Trustees to send a representative to 
a meeting on Wednesday, June 16, to explain the Trustees* action 
on designation of a location for the University Medical School. 
Discussion followed, and the Chairman was requested to contact the 
Governor's Council and determine whether or not action on the 
Medical School location transpiring at the meeting of June 11 had 
not closed this business.

Treasurer Johnson commented on the progress of taking 
over the building at 100 Arlington Street. He indicated that the 
University was moving ahead very rapidly. All contracts except one 
were out to bid. He reported that we may have access very soon; 
however, so-called "wet labs" may be delayed somewhat after the 
opening of the facility in September. By June 15, the Boston Con- 
solidated Gas Company will turn over the first nine floors. The

5. Chancellor John W. Ryan of UM/Boston was presented to 
the Board, of which he was formerly the Secretary, and introduced 
to new members of the Board. At the invitation of the Provost, he 
gave a brief report on the status of UM/Boston. 

Chancellor Ryan expressed gratitude at the opportunity to 
be included in the meeting, and gave thanks for the generous 
reception he had received since returning to the Commonwealth. He 
gave much credit for developments to date on the building site and 
recrutiment of faculty to Provost Tippo and the UM/Boston Task 
Force . 

The Chancellor reported that all authorized faculty 
positions (total of 67) were filled. Positions have been staffed 
in the humanities, social sciences and physical and biological 
sciences. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

As of June 24, 1965, UM/Boston had received 2,300 appli- 
cations of which. 1,500 were certified as eligible for admission, 
and approximately 900 students have signified intention to enroll. 
Dr. Ryan indicated that we would definitely have 1,000 students 
enrolled by fall. Seventy-five to eighty-five per cent of new 
faculty have Ph.D. degrees. The UM/Boston building will be 
completely turned over to the University of August 1. 

6. Provost Tippo reported that petitions have been re- 
ceived from the Council of Academic Deans and from the Faculty 
Senate, each requesting that they be given an opportunity to appear 
before the Board of Trustees and present their views with respect 
to the vote taken at the meeting of June 11 on the location of the 
University Medical School. There followed extensive discussion on 
the pros and cons of an appropriate date to receive the petitioners; 
also on the question of whether a reconsideration vote might be 
taken, and how many groups of petitioners might be entertained at 
a single meeting of the Board. 

It was pointed out that it would be a profound discourtesy 
to consider these questions in the absence of the President who is 
currently traveling abroad. 

After further discussion, it was moved by Trustee Gordon, 
seconded, and unanimously 

VOTED: That the Board of Trustees meet at a con- 
venient time during the weelc of July 26, 
1965 in the morning in order to hear the 
petitions of certain delegations on the 
question of the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School site vote, with a view to 
talcing whatever action is necessary in the 
afternoon, said hearings to be 
confined to the following groups of 
petitioners : 

a. Delegation from the City of Worcester 

b. Council of Academic Deans 

c. Representatives of the State AFL-CI0 

d. Representatives of the University 
Faculty Senate 

Dean Soutter expressed the hope that all Trustees present 
at the meeting on June 11 would be present as a courtesy tc the 
members of the petitioning delegations. 

Trustee Croce suggested that, if the question of re- 
consideration were to be taken up at any particular meeting, this 
fact should be announced well in advance and published in the 
agenda. He also expressed the view that, if the Board of Trustees 
feels that it is facing a question of reconsideration, then the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds should be instructed to hold up 
on further plans for development of a Worcester site until the 
question is resolved.

versity of Massachusetts Faculty Senate. He explained that the

up on problems relating to the Willis Report legislation as it 
moved through the General Court. He indicated that the Committee 
had advanced the objectives of the University relative to these 
matters, and that the outcome had appeared satisfactory. 

Committee Chairman Healey presented the report of the 
Committee on Finance. He first introduced a schedule of tuition 
and fees for students attending UM/Boston. The tuition would be 
the same as in Amherst, but the fees would be less due to the nature 
of the Boston institution as a commuting campus.

been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Chairman at 10:20 a.m. 

Chairman Boyden explained that the purpose of the meeting 
was to hear petitions from several groups relating to the decision 
of the Board at its meeting on June 11, 1965, which established the 
University Medical School in the City of Worcester. He noted 
further that several members of the Legislature were present and 
that, although these representatives were not listed in the Order 
of the Meeting, that they were welcome and would be given the 
privilege of the floor.

tion of Legislators headed by Representative John Thompson of

to reach a decision. He simply wished to welcome the University of 
Massachusetts Medical School to the City of Worcester. He indi- 
cated that his colleagues would speak briefly. He then introduced 
the following persons: 

1 . Francis J. McGrath, City Manager of Worcester 

Mr. McGrath congratulated the Board on their choice of 
Y/orcester as the site for the Medical School. He indicated that 
Worcester considered itself in the heart of the Commonwealth and 
had facilities to support the new School. He observed that 
Worcester ?ras often called the "City of Schools." The decision for 
Worcester, he said was an aCfirmat'iojt. of the cultural assets of the 
community. He indicated that Worcester had been considered as a 
site for the Medical School as far back as 1961. He noted that 
Dean Soutter had met in 1964 with members of the City Council and 
that complete cooperation had been pledged to him. He observed 
that disappointment of persons in other parts of the state was 
understandable and natural. He noted that, from the medical view- 
point, Worcester citizens had underwritten a nev/ 5 million dollar 
City Hospital; also, that there were 5 major colleges in the 
community involved in expansion programs totalling more than 100 
million dollars. 

2. Dr. John Carmody, Neurological Surgeon, and 
C hairman of The Worcester M edical Society . 

Dr. Carmody stated that he considered Worcester an ex- 
cellent choice, speaking as a physician. He indicated that 
Worcester had five major hospitals and that these facilities Y/ould 
be available for clinical purposes. He stressed also the develop- 
ment of city library systems in the City containing materials in 
the field of medicine accumulated over more than two centuries. 

3. Dr. Huds on Hoaglan d. Co-Pounder of the 
Wo rces ter Found ation . 

Dr. Hoagland expressed delight at the advent of the Uni- 
versity Medical School to the City of Y/orcester. He indicated that 
he had had no difficulty in recruiting a distinguished faculty for 
the Y/orcester Hrundation vdiich was established 20 years ago for the 
purpose of research and teaching in fields related to biochemistry. 
His opinion was that it would not be difficult to attract a good 
faculty to Y/orcester. 

4 • Mr. Daniel C. Rich. D irector of the Y/orcester 
A rt Museum . 

Mr. Rich stated that, as the "second" city in the Common- 
wealth, Y/orcester long ago determined to be culturally independent 
of Boston. He noted that the city had the oldest music festival 
in the United States, the V/orcester Light Opera Company, the 
Players Club, the Antiquarian Society, and a well-developed Craft 
Center. He praised the Y/orcester Science Museum and indicated that 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

nearby Sturbridge Village represented a cultural advantage. He said 
that the Worcester Art Museum had been termed by TIME as one of the 
best in America. He expressed confidence that the cultural aspects 
of Worcester would benefit the new Medical School. 

5 . Mr . John Adam. Jr . , Pre sident of the Mutual 
Fire I nsurance Compa ny, and Presi dent of the 
Wor ceste r Area Chamb er of Com merce . 

Mr. Adam stated that the business community in Worcester 
would do everything within its power to make the University of 
Massachusetts Medical School one of the best in the country. He 
noted that Sprague Electrical Company, involved now in great ex- 
pansion, had determined its choice of location in Worcester not 
only because of its good labor market but also because of its 
ability to attract professional people. He stressed the unusual 
quality in Worcester community life of close association between 
the business and academic communities.

Dr. Hyman Heller, Pr esident

of the Worcester 



Dr. Heller pledged the support of the Worcester District 
Medical Society and their full cooperation. He refuted an editorial 
comment in a recent issue of the NEW ENGLAND MEDICAL JOURNAL as 
"one man's opinion." 

7 . Mr. H. Ladd Plumley, President and Chairman 

of the Board of the Stat e Mut ual Life Insurance 
Company, and recent Past President of the U nit ed 
States Chamber of Commerc e. 

Mr. Plumley expressed the view that the Board of Trustees 
was not surprised by reactions recurring since the decision to 
place the Medical School in Worcester. One thing, he said, may not 
have been foreseen: the possibility of locating the Medical School 
at the Worcester State Hospital site. Pie stated that the inference 
that the previous decision of the Board was "frivolous or politically 
motivated must be struck down." He indicated, if the decision is 
reversed, that a "Pandora's box will be opened, and successive 
power plays will result." 

The Chairman next called upon the representatives of the 
Council of Academic Deans, as follows: 

1 . Dr. Edwa rd C. Mo ore. D ean of the Graduate 
School. Coordinator of Re s earch, and Pro- 
fessor of Philosophy . 

Dean Moore's paper was entitled "Medical Education as 
Graduate Education." It stressed the costly duplication of facili- 
ties which would be required if the Medical School is separated 
from existing graduate facilities on the University campus in

Amherst. It pointed out the necessity of having well-developed 
graduate school facilities as an essential part of a first-rate 
medical program. Dean Moore observed that the Trustees had 
established on the campus in Amherst a Research Computer Center 
with 3 million dollars worth of equipment. Also, since 1961, the 
Trustees have added physical plant facilities for graduate work 
that include a major Physics Building, an Engineering Building, 
two new additions to the Morrill Life Sciences Center, and a new 
Food Science Building. The new Graduate Research Center, currently 
in the planning stage, will involve 20 million dollars worth of 
physical facilities when completed. A new Library is planned for 
the campus as the number one priority at a cost of 10 million 
dollars . 

Dean Moore pointed out also that the Graduate Research 
Center had recently received 3 million dollars in Federal support 
on the grounds that the University was developing "a top-notch 
science center in Amherst." 

Dean Moore's statement is on file with members of the 
Board of Trustees. (Document 66-008) 

2 . Dr. I. Move r Hunsberger , Dean of the College 

of Arts and S ciences, and Professor of Chemistry . 

Dean Hunsberger stressed the outstanding work of the 
Board of Trustees in building a great University over the past 
five years, aid especially so since the so-called autonomy legis- 
lation was passed in 1962. He highlighted -y^e importance of the 
University's ability to attract successfully outstanding candidates 
for faculty positions at a time when the national market grows 
tighter every year. 

"Without this enviable record of Trustees' past action, 
the caliber of new faculty appointees could not have improved so 
drastically," he said. Dean Hunsberger stated that the Academic 
Deans of the University urged the Board to reconsider their recent 
decision in view of the following arguments, (a) No educational 
reason had been advanced for preferring Worcester over the Uni- 
versity campus as a site for the Medical School, (b) No discussion 
of the relative merits of Y/orcester versus the University was per- 
mitted prior to the fifth and final ballot on June 11. (c) The 
questionable wisdom of using a secret ballot to decide so important 
an educational issue, (d) The unanimous request of the Faculty 
Senate for reconsideration, (e) The unanimous endorsement of the 
Senate action by all faculty members attending the meeting, (f) The 
unanimous request for a reconsideration by all nine Academic Deans . 
(g) The delay, by at least a decade, (if the Medical School is 
separated from its parent university) of the acquisition by the Uni- 
versity of so-called "cricial academic mass" (the concentration of 
resources needed to make real educational impact), (h) The 
unnecessary duplication of existing facilities which would add new

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

and unnecessarily expensive dimensions to the tax problems of the 
Commonwealth by virtue of the necessity for constructing a full- 
fledged university around the Medical School in Worcester, (i) 
The lack of a substantial majority on a decision so important. 

Dean Hunsberger also queried why the Board would take any 
action contrary to the recommendations of the President, the 
Provost, the Medical Dean, all other Academic Deans, the Faculty 
Senate, and the faculty, particularly when such action 
"violently disregards the recommendations of a host of outside 
medical consultants whose reputations are free of bias and who have 
nothing whatsoever to gain or lose regardless of where the Medical 
School is located." 

Dean Hunsberger' s statement is on file with members of 
the Board of Trustees. (Document 66-009) 

3. Dean Mary A. Maher. Dean of the School of Nursing . 

Dean Maher stressed the interdependence of the School of 
Medicine and programs at a well-established University. She stated 
that, traditionally, the physician and nurse were viewed as the 
primary pair essential for providing adequate patient care. Later, 
medical social workers, dietitians, occupational and physical 
therapists and medical technicians became members of the health 
team. 

As a consequence, she stated, several Colleges and School?: 
of the University feel a social obligation to develop programs 
which prepare students with different orientations to and 
specialized knowledge in the complex field of health. She said she 
referred to behaviorial scientists, clinical psjrchologists, health 
educators, sanitarians, health agents, speech and recreational 
therapists, bio-engineers and bio-physicists among others. 

Dean Maher stated that many of the outstanding members 
of the Nursing School faculty, all of whom have taught in a Uni- 
versity Medical Center, have remained with the School in 
anticipation of the establishment of a School of Medicine and 
Medical Center at the University. New faculty members, she said, 
have likewise been influenced in joining the faculty because of 
the possibility of teaching students of Nursing in such a Center. 
She stated that the decision of June 11 to establish the Medical 
School in Worcester was a cause of "deep disappointment and con- 
cern" to faculties of the various professional programs. 

Dean Maher' s statement is on file with members of the 
Board of Trustees. (Document 66-010) 

The Chairman next called on the representatives of the 
Faculty Senate, as follows:

1. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Dr. Thomas 0. Wilkinson. Professor of Sociology 
and Director of the Population Research Institute . 



Dr. Wilkinson's paper demonstrated that there is more 
than sufficient population within a reasonable distance of Amherst 
to support a Medical Center and that this population constitutes a 
representative cross-section of persons necessary for the 
effective functioning of such a Medical Center. 

Specifically, he noted, that the three counties of which 
Amherst is approximately the center (Franklin, Hampshire and 
Hampden) support a population of 587,000 persons, in contrast to 
Worcester County which has approximately the same area and supports 
a population of 583,000 persons. 

He noted also that the American Association of Medical 
Colleges has set as a standard a minimum of 250,000 persons within 
a radius of 50 miles of a medical school. Drawing a radius of 30 
miles from Amherst, Professor Wilkinson showed that this gives a 
hit over one-quarter of the area of the minimum contained in the 
AAMC standard, yet this area yields a population of 627,000 persons, 
This means, he noted, that Amherst has a population of two and one- 
half times that considered adequate in an area approximate ly one- 
fourth the size of that in the standard. 

Professor Wilkinson's statement is on file with members 
of the Board of Trustees. (Document 66-011) 

2. Professor Donald Fairbaim. Commonwealth Head 
of the Department of Zoology . 

Professor Fairbairn expressed gratitude to the Board of 
Trustees for granting the request of the Faculty Senate to be 
heard. "You are our Trustees and we are your faculty," he said, 
"and we are all the servants of the people. It is fitting that we 
should listen respectfully to one another." 

"No faculty, at any university, " Professor Fairbairn 
said, "can afford to ignore an action which sets aside, without 
explanation and by hurried ballot the recommendations of an over- 
whelming majority of the country's foremost medical educators and 
of a non-partisan firm of consultants, and at the same time places 
in jeopardy that university's search for the highest quality faculty 
and students. That is why the Faculty Senate took the action it 
did, and why it now pleads for a more rational approach to a most 
serious matter. " 

Professor Fairbairn quoted both the earlier Flexner re- 
port and the lately produced Coggeshall report, both of which 
stressed the requirement that, regardless of other considerations, 
a medical school and health sciences center should be situated on 
the campus of its parent university. 



2743 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



"The faculty has been dismayed and distressed in another 
respect, " Professor Fairbairn continued, "and believes that the 
University will suffer great damage if your decision of June 11 is 
permitted to stand. Is the University to be known throughout the 
land as an institution in which momentous decisions are made con- 
trary to the advice of its President, Provost, Deans, faculty, 
and to the weight of expert opinion acquired at great cost? Is it 
to be known as an institution which fought hard for fiscal 
autonomy and won its battle, as have all great state universities, 
only to demonstrate by its actions that it is afraid to accept the 
great responsibilities which autonomy brings? Or does it reject 
the advice of its Governor when he states that the issue of 
Medical School location should be decided on professional grounds? 
If such is, indeed, the case, then the future of higher public edu- 
cation in Massachusetts is no longer bright." 

The Faculty Senate statement is on file with members of 
the Board of Trustees. (Document 66-012) 



Chairman Boyden then introduced Mr. Daniel Murray, vice- 
president of the AFL-CIO. Mr. Murray stated that he had heard in 
discussions up to this point today dire predictions about the 
state of the University of Massachusetts and that he questioned 
this. He also indicated that he had heard representatives from 
Western Massachusetts "plug for their area, " and that this was 
understandable . 



Representative 
of the AFL-CIO 



Mr. Murray observed that there are some 900 (sic) 
medical schools in the United States and that all of these 
established have to be in some proximity to a hospital. He in- 
dicated that the City of Worcester appeared to be eminently 
qualified to supply clinical facilities for a medical school. 

He observed that some persons had criticized a statement 
issued broadly by the State AFL-CIO endorsing the Board's decision 
to locate the School in Worcester and that they had threatened 
disaffiliation. He reaffirmed the support of the AFL-CIO in be- 
half of the decision of the Board and stated that it was important 
to get on with the work of building a School. 

Trustee Troy queried whether the State AFL-CIO member- 
ship had been polled prior to the issuing of the statement in 
support of the decision of the Board and Mr. Murray replied that 
it had not. 



Trustee Thompson responded that the decision had been 
taken at a meeting where 35 members of the Executive Council 
representing various districts throughout the state were present 
and that these representatives had voted in support of the state- 
ment.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Although it was not in the Order of the Meeting, the 
Chairman admitted statements by the following members of the 
General Court: Representative Walter T. Kostanski of Montague; 
Representatives John F. Melia, David S. Tobin and George O'Leary 
of Boston. 

The Representatives from Boston argued in favor of re- 
considering Boston and specifically affiliation with Boston City 
Hospital as a prospective site for location of the Medical School. 

At this point the meeting was recessed for luncheon. 

Chairman Boyden reconvened the meeting at 3:20 p.m. 

After brief discussion, it was moved by Trustee Brown, 
seconded and 



Repre s ent at i ve s 
of the City 
of Springfield 



VOTED : That representatives of the City of 
Springfield and the Citizens ' 
Committee on the Medical School Site 
in Amherst be heard and that no other 
persons be heard except by action of 
the Board of Trustees. 

The Chairman introduced Mayor Charles Ryan of Spring- 
field. 

Mayor Ryan expressed his appreciation to the Board of 
Trustees for their courtesy in permitting the Springfield delega- 
tion to present its case. He stated that he was aware of the 
tensions facing the Trustees and that he had tried his best to keep 
the interests of the City of Springfield on the basis of an 
honorable competition with other communities. "The fact is, how- 
ever, that the City of Springfield has more doctors, more cultural 
advantages than any other community in the Commonwealth except 
Boston," he said. He pointed out that Springfield had led over 
Worcester in the Booz, Allen and Hamilton report in 25 of 30 
categories, and that it had held the first position in 17 categories 
He stressed that greater importance should be attached, not only 
to what people did, but how it did it. The only way that re- 
consideration can come up, he added, is to do exactly that - re- 
consider; this is not necessarily synonymous with reversal. 

Mayor Ryan urged the Trustees to reach "a decision that 
is defensible - we know that some had to vote without knowing all 
there is to know. " 

The Chairman next introduced Mr. Roger Putnam, former 
Mayor of Springfield. 

Mr. Putnam stated that he was trying to look at the whole 
question educationally, but was disturbed deeply by the obvious 
•chasm between the faculty and Deans and the Board of Trustees. 
These groups, he said, should work as a team. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



He mentioned a possible compromise in which the first 
two years of medical education would he offered on the University 
campus in Amherst, v/ith the final two years of clinical work 
offered at a teaching hospital in Springfield. This would combine 
the educational values of the campus with the urban values 
advantageous in the clinical years. 

Finally, Mr, Putnam indicated that Springfield also had 
museums, a symphony orchestra, excellent parks and recreation 
facilities and other cultural advantages. He urged the members of 
the Board to visit Springfield and to postpone action until after 
this visit was made. 



2745 



The Chairman next introduced representatives of the 
Citizens Committee for the Medical School site in Amherst as 
follows : 

1. Dr. Albert E. Goss. Professor of Psychology . 
University of Massachusetts, head of the 
delegation . 



Citizens 
Committee for 
the Medical 
School Site in 
Amherst 



Professor Goss expressed appreciation to the Board for 
their courtesy in permitting the Citizens Committee to express its 
views. He then introduced representatives of his delegation as 
follows : 

2. Samuel P. Martin. III. M.D.. Professor of 
Medicine and Provost. The University of 
Florida . 

Dr. Martin's topic was "Medical Education: Yesterday, 
Today, Tomorrow." 

Dr. Martin told the Board of Trustees that he had come 
to speak principally "in a philosophical vein." "A state medical 
school, " he said, "has obligations to meet the needs of today; 
also the needs of tomorrow. It is the latter task which taxes our 
ingenuity. A state medical school, he added, should be sensitive 
to the changing nature of medicine and medical education. " 

Dr. Martin's principal point was that medical education 
is at a turning point in its history. He indicated that he was 
disturbed at the talk directed only at a medical school. The 
state, he noted, needs to look at the Health Question as a 
totality. The practice of medicine today is shaped by our view of 
the causes of disease. The State, therefore, must embark on 
training a multi-discipline team to handle the health problems of 
the Commonwealth. One must look at the community as well as the 
individual. In these terms, the University is a haven for the 
propagation of adequate training because of the opportunities it 
affords for "cross-pollination" between the various disciplines. 
He cited this factor in operation at the University of Florida, 
where exchanges of information occur between the Colleges of 
Engineering, Agriculture and Business Administration with the 
College of Medicine. 



2746 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Dr. Martin observed that the University of Florida has a 
one year's waiting list for cardiac surgery; also, that the 
average distance traveled by referral patients is 90 miles. He 
cited the Flexner report which called for establishing medical 
schools on the campuses of the parent university; also the 
Coggeshall report which attested the same philosophy. 

Trustee Weldon queried Dr. Martin whether, in the study 
of environment, it would not be better for the trainee to work 
"on the scene, where the patients are?" 

Dr. Martin responded that the real job is to create a 
selective microcosm. This microcosm should contain a cross-section 
of typical health cases and medical problems indigenous to the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, including the spectrum of diseases 
and the spectrum of income levels, national origin, etc., and that 
this resource should be available to the medical school and 
hospital on the basis of referral cases. 



3. Dr. Goss next introduced George G. Reader . 
M.D.j. Professor of Medicine at the Cornell 
University Medical Center . 

Dr. Reader stated that he was sorry to hear that 
Worcester has a five million dollar City Hospital, because this 
facility would not be suitable for teaching - "not that it won't 
be useful." He stated that he felt that the Board of Trustees had 
been misled by the 19th century concept that medical education is 
simply lecturing and apprenticeship. 

"Even in the old days," he stated, "great European uni- 
versities and their medical centers were located in small towns. 
There is, he added, a magnificent opportunity here to develop a 
great state university hospital in Massachusetts. This facility 
should be a model. Dr. Reader indicated that a computer center 
alone, for example, is "an absolute essential today." "Most 
medical schools," he added, "are now permitting students in their 
second and third years to do some research. He stressed the fact 
that a function of a good hospital should be training investiga- 
tors, as well as providing medical education. This is important." 

"One fallacy is," Dr. Reader continued, "that a medical 
school cannot be good unless it has a lot of trauma cases, as 
though it had to be located 'near the battlefield.'" Actually, 
Dr. Reader indicated, such cases need to be studied under condi- 
tions of strict control of the environment and circumstances which 
do not suggest 'on the spot' emergency treatment, but rather re- 
ferral of patients for specific purposes." 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At Cornell, Dr. Reader added, we have suffered from the 
separation of the medical school with the main university campus. 
If an opportunity came up today, instead of in 1897, the situation 
would he looked into most carefully "before any decision for 
separation were arrived at. He concluded by urging the Board in 
strong terms to reconsider this question very carefully. 

4. Dr. Harold B. Pine. Administrator at 
Holyoke Hospital . 

Dr. Pine stated, "in reconsidering its decision, I would 
like to ask the Board to give full consideration to the tremendous 
emphasis being placed nationally and area-wide on the concept of 
regional planning of hospitals and related medical facilities. 

"At the present time, the hospitals in Massachusetts are 
participating in a state-wide survey of in-patient facilities at 
the direction of the Bureau of Hospital Facilities of the State De- 
partment of Public Health, the agency charged with responsibility 
for the allocation of Hill-Burton funds. Hospitals in western 
Massachusetts, through both this study and their own voluntary 
organization, are and will be planning for the future of hospital 
care in that part of the state. On this effort, our hospitals and 
their medical staffs have been restricted by the lack of a Uni- 
versity medical center in western Massachusetts. This growing and 
closely integrated metropolitan center will be for many years to 
come — if not forever — deprived of the stimulation and ex- 
cellence that only a medical school and its teaching hospital, can 
provide . 

"In planning for its future, western Massachusetts needs 
the leadership and direction that a university medical center will 
provide, Dr. Pine stated. "Leadership is already available to all 
other parts of the State through the complex of teaching centers in 
Boston. " 

"Location of the University medical center in Amherst 
should also be considered in order to fit it most logically into a 
pattern of area-wide medical centers. Major medical school, centers 
in the northeast, — aside from the obvious ones in Boston and New 
York City — are centered in New Haven, Albany and Burlington, 
Vermont. locating the school in Worcester, well within the Boston 
orbit, does not contribute to this regional concept of medical 
center distribution." 

"The excellence and quality of care that a combined 
medical school - regional center would provide should not be denied 
to the taxpayers of western Massachusetts," Dr. Pine concluded. 

Trustee Troy queried Dr. Pine on the feasibility of 
having two years of medical training in Amherst and two years of 
clinical work in an urban community, such as Springfield. Dr. Pine 
referred the question to Dr. Martin.

Dr. Martin indicated that it was not good education to 
separate the two elements of medical training. 

Trustee Healey interposed that he had had people tell 
him that "they wouldn't cross a twenty- foot strip to go from a 
college of arts and sciences to a medical school."

Dr. Martin responded that "they certainly would do so in 



Dr. Goss next presented his own statement on 
the topic of "The Ultimate Commitment in the 
Health Sciences and Technologies ." 

Professor Goss told the Board of Trustees that he wished 
to explore what the total commitment of the University of Massa- 
chusetts to medical education would be in the next ten or fifteen 
years . 

"The problem envisions the building of a crippled 
children's hospital, animal hospital, psychiatric institute, over 
the next two decades," he said. Placing the school in Amherst 
would, in the view of Dr. Goss, cut short the problem of where all 
these units might be placed. The assumption is that as much as 
300 acres of land would be desirable. 

"Merely listing the additional schools and taking the 
presence of many supporting departments for granted" (in the Booz, 
Allen and Hamilton report) had two unfortunate consequences, 
according to Dr. Goss. One was that the Trustees apparently were 
not provided with complete and detailed information about the 
nature and scope of the University of Massachusetts' ultimate 
commitment to training, research and service — not only in 
medicine, but also in many other health sciences and technologies. 
The other consequence was that the Trustees were not provided with 
relatively complete and detailed information about the nature and 
scope of unnecessary duplication, in Worcester or in Springfield, 
of facilities for supporting departments already present or under 
construction on the Amherst campus. 

"No one is to blame for this failure to provide such 
essential information," Dr. Goss stated. 

Trustee Gordon queried Dr. Goss whether he felt that the 
Booz, Allen and Hamilton people had considered such factors when 
they recommended establishment of the University of Indiana medical 
school in Indianapolis. 

Dr. Goss pointed out that this was not a question of 
establishing a new school, but adding to an old school established 
since 1900, where a great and massive investment of funds had 
already been committed to Indianapolis, 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Trustee Healey stated that "one of the problems is that 
once you let a. medical school in the door, the medical school 
•eats ut> the university, ' and the medical school deans end up 
running" presidents . " 

Trustee Gordon asked Dr. Goss whether he would not enjoy 
taking a trip to New York City to see Albert Einstein College of 
Medicine which is established apart from its parent institution, 
Yeshiva University. The question was referred to Dr. Pleader. 

Dr. Reader responded that the separation of Albert 
Einstein Medical College from Yeshiva University is bound to hurt 
both Yeshiva and Albert Einstein. 

Professor Goss continued that there are a number of 
health sciences and technologies, in addition to medicine, each of 
which is important in its own right and also in comolimentary re- 
lationships with other health sciences and technologies. Among 
these are: nursing, medical technology, veterinary medicine, 
pharmacy, dentistry, social work, public health, hospital ad- 
ministration, clinical and counselling psychology, nutrition, re- 
medial work in reading, speech pathology and audiology. Facilities 
and staff for training, research and service in some of these 
health sciences and technologies are already present on the Amherst 
campus, or soon will be, Dr. Goss continued. "They are almost 
certain to be among the ultimate commitments of the University of 
Massachusetts," Dr. Goss stated. 

Most of the special facilities are self-explanatory, he 
said. "Some require brief elaboration. One is the child study 
center. Such a center — which would be for study of behavorial 
and physical processes and development of normal humans from early 

infancy up to six years of age — is essential in a number of 

specialties and sub-specialties ranging from anatomy through 
nutrition, pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, sociology and 
zoology. Such a center would parallel, on the human level, the 
primate centers now being established throughout the country. 
Such a center cannot feasibly be developed unless various depart- 
ments of a medical school and of other health sciences and 
technologies are present on the same campus along with various de- 
partments of the College of Arts and Sciences and of the School of 
Education." 

Dr. Goss concluded that "in order to avoid chaos in the 
development of the University of Massachusetts and in the further 
development and improvement of public higher education in the 
Commonwealth, it is imperative that the medical school of the 
University be placed on the Amherst campus, 
"no other reasonable course."

The Secretary read the motion of Trustee Emerson made at 
the meeting of July 28, as follows: 

MOTION : I move that the vote of the Board of

This motion had been seconded. 

Chairman Boyden called for discussion. He recognized 
Trustee Emerson who read a prepared statement. This statement 
(Document 66-012A) is attached to and has been made a part of these

Mr. Emerson stressed the high additional costs involve^ 
in establishing the Medical School in the City of Worcester. He 
added that this would "possibly (involve the) establishment 
eventually of another state university, either under the control of 
the State College at Worcester, or under the University, with a 
budget that could, in time, equal if not exceed the one currently 
covering Amherst." 

He referred to the Booz, Allen and Hamilton Report which 
stated that it would cost more than half a million dollars per year 
additional to operate the Medical School in Worcester, in contrast 
with a campus location at the University in Amherst. He noted that 
Dean Scutter had calculated the difference to be approximately 
$1,500,000 additional. "It is safe to estimate," he said, "that

operating costs would fall in between these two figures." 

Mr. Emerson noted also that the Central Labor Union of 
Western Massachusetts could not support Worcester as the location 
for the hospital, "and has so stated publicly in the press." 

In conclusion he urged the Trustees to visit not only the 
site favored as of now (Worcester), "but all other sites away from 
the campus in the four other areas; Springfield, suburban Boston, 
Worcester and metropolitan Boston." 

Trustee Weldon stated that he wished to clarify what 
could be voted on at the meeting today. He noted that the Trustees 
had made a decision on the 11th of June, and were then requested to 
reconsider as though the question had not been studied prior to 
that time . 

"In one way or another, we have been reconsidering this 
question ever since that time," he said. "We have to recognize 
that no matter where we voted to place the school, we would incur 
some person's displeasure and disapproval. We are all human. 
Perhaps this was not the most perfect approach to this. We have no 
right to challenge the vote. One might challenge some of the 
approaches to the vote." 

"We voted on June 11," he said, "and we stated, that we 
would unite behind the decision. There is a difference between the 
urban and the rural setting, but these are understandable 
differences of opinion. Since then, we have been asked to re- 
consider the vote. It seems to me that what we are concerned with 
is not the advantages or disadvantages of any given location, but 
we are concerned now with just one thing; is there sufficient 
reason for the good of the Medical School, for the good of the Uni- 
versity, for the good of the Commonwealth to reconsider — that is, 
to set aside our vote of June 11 — and to apply ourselves to a re- 
study of the situation. Anything else apart from that is irrelevant 
and clouds the issue, and we should not address ourselves to it." 

The Chairman recognized Trustee Gordon. Mr. Gordon's 
statement is attached to and has been made a part of these minutes 
as Document 66-013. 

Mr. Gordon stated that not enough had been said about the 
virtues of Worcester. He echoed the sentiments expressed by 
Trustee Weldon. He stressed the long search that had gone into the 
site selection at Worcester. The ad hoc committee had visited 
Worcester, individual Trustees had done so, and now we are at the 
point of re-analysis as to "why Worcester?" 

"It seems to me," he said, "that the Citv of Worcester 
best fulfills the mandate <riven to the Board of Trustees." 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



In his prepared statement, Trustee Gordon stressed the 
need for a central location "at the heart of the Commonwealth." 
He noted that the City of Worcester is within one hour's driving 
time of all but a very few of the State institutions of higher 
learning, and all but a few of its larger cities. 

"The University of Massachusetts Medical School must 
serve the entire state, which is becoming increasingly urban," he 
said . 

"Worcester by itself, not to speak of the immediately 
contiguous area, can provide the variety and numbers of patients 
needed by medical students." 

Trustee Gordon continued by citing the number of hospital: 
available in Worcester, together with t^eir professional staffs 
which "are not only available for service to the Medical School, 
but will serve on whatever basis the Medical School desires." 

"An ample and attractive site at the Worcester State 
Hospital is available for the Medical School at no cost to the 
State," he continued, "which site will also provide dynamie possi- 
bilities for study and research to solve the pressing needs in 
fields of mental health." 

M 1 ". Gorc'p-n further stressed the availability of other 
colleges and universities ir + he Worcester area, and the "remarkable 
Worcester Foundation for Experimental Biology, which has ex- 
perienced no difficulty recruiting a world renowned staff of 
150 M.D.'s and Ph.D.'s, plus 50 Post-Doctoral students studying the 
very essence here of medical science," 

Mr. Gordon continued that beyond Worcester's own in- 
stitutions, a Worcester location would provide a point equally 
close to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and its 
neighbor colleges on the west, as well as to Harvard, Tufts, B.U., 
M.I.T. and other institutions in Boston. He noted that the rapid 
progress of automated information storage, retrieval and trans- 
mission will soon open all schools, wherever they may be, to 
nearly instantaneous communication with work goii; hroughout 
the country. 

Bishop Weldon stated that he wished to go on record *■- 
noting that statements presented at the meeting a week ago by the 
-representatives of the Council of Academic Deans and +he Faculty 
Senate had been carefully considered by this Board before going to 
a vote. 

"Unfortunately, some of our correspondents, and those 
reporting activities for the press have not understood fully all 
of the factors that wert into the search that we have r^ade right 
along," he said.

Comment by 

Trustee 

Plimpton 



He stated that he wished to have it clear on the record 
that the Board members had reconsidered and that they are aware of 
the close and intimate relationship between the Trustees and the 
Administration and the Faculty, and that they are aware that they 
could not have a great University without trust and confidence be- 
tween these various groups and that he regrets the strain in re- 
lationships between the groups. 

"We recognize their good faith end goodwill and we have 
weighted their Tvrese^t.atio-" in the same snirit . " he stated. 

Trustee Plimpton noted that, while all members of the 
Board had agreed to abide by the decision, he would not feel easy 
about starting a medical school at the University in Amherst on a 
twelve to ten vote. He is equally uneasy about doing so in 
Worcester on a twelve to ten vote. He stated that some compromise 
should be explored that could lead to more general and enthusiastic 
support, and that he, therefore, hoped that the Board would vote to 
reconsider. 



Statement by 

Trustee 

Healey 



Comment by 
Trustee 
Troy 



Trustee Healey stated that he wished to address himself 
to one narrow aspect of the problem. He indicated that the deans 
and the faculty members appeared to be concerned with the problem 
of dilution. 

"Dilution is inherent in growth," he said. 

Mr. Healey stressed the necessity to "broaden our 
horizons" in a sense that the obligation of the University to the 
people of the entire Commonwealth ought to be taken into account. 
He also expressed concern that the medical school have as its 
primary objective the turning out of practicing physicians. 

"I think that there is a great place for ie search; there 
is a great place for teaching; but some of our great medical 
schools are turning out primarily researchers and teachers, " he 
said. "I hope, without compromising the quality of what we produce 
at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, that somehow or 
other we will get back to the problem that we started with a long 
time sgo } and that is to turn out doctors who will treat people." 

Trustee Troy responded that he did not feel that the lo- 
cation of the University Medical School in Amherst would call for a 
special orientation toward teaching or research at the expense of 
turning out practicing physicians. "It is widely understood today 
among medical educators," he said "that there must be distinguished 
research and research facilities in order to bring in distinguished 
professors of medicine, and that is the issue." 

"Secondly, the problem that follows from that is the cost 
of duplicating these facilities and there you do get dilution of 
the economic pie." 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Thompson observed that he had looked at the Booz, 
Allen Hamilton Report, the Dever Report and the New England Board 
Report within the last five days, and the more i he read and searched 
his soul, the more he was convinced that the Board was right in 
the first place. "You keep coming back to one thing," he said, 
'"in order to learn to play a piano you must have a piano." 1 His 
point on this, he said, was that in order to turn out first-rate 
doctors you have to have clinical material for them to practice on. 

"I believe sincerely and faithfully that we have made the 
right choice," he added, "and that we should proceed with this." 

Mr. Thompson noted that, in 1950, a bill was presented to 
the Senate to place the Medical School in Boston, but that the 
then Governor Dever could not get the 21st vote to do so. The 
vote was 20 to 20. The question has been under consideration since 
that time, and Mr. Thompson indicated that he had put his calendar 
of activities together in connection with the Medical School to 
see where, at any time, anyone had indicated that this school 
should be any where but in Boston. This calendar and statement 
are attached and have been made a part of these minutes as 
Document 66-015. 

Mr. Thompson continued that in all of the discussion that 
went on for seven years of his activity, and having a doctor in his 
family, and in talking with medical men throughout the county, and 
in being associated with the hospital building program in New York 
State appointed by Governor Dewey, he could not, in good conscience, 
(find reasons to) vote to place the medical school in Amherst. He 
decided that his vote was going to an urban area primarily because 
of the clinical material available to an urban site, and because of 
the opinion of physicians he had consulted who stated that this was 
necessary to turn out first-rate physicians. 

Mr. Thompson noted that he had met with the deans of 
Harvard, Tufts and Boston University and that it had been decided 
that an insufficient supply of medical doctors were beine turned 
out by the existing medical, schools. Mr. Thompson then elaborated 
on the calendar which is attached herewith as Document 66-015. 

Trustee Thompson continued that members of the Board of 
Trustees had visited the Legislature many times in order to get the 
Medical School bill passed. He noted that deans of the three 
existing medical schools in the Commonwealth "followed right after 
them, 'button-holing' the legislators and saying "don't do it! 1 
This is the kind of fight we have hs at along," he said. 
"Then we found that the only place you couldn't have the medical 
school was near these three medical schools — get it out in the 
sticks some where and don't bother us!"

He then described a meeting with Governor Volpe, along 
six other representatives of the State Labor Council, to request 
jovernor not to veto the Medical School bill . He reported that the 
had stated that the delegation had made a good case.

"Since that date — July 24, 1962 — I have been studying 
the proposals for establishment of a medical school, and I think 
it would be a crime for us to postpone a decision any longer. We 
have a perfect site for a first-rate medical school, " Thompson con- 
tinued. "We have the support of the City of Worcester and the 
surrounding communities and I am confident that it will be a first- 
rate medical school. I understand how I am voting, and I under- 
stand how I voted. I am not for reconsideration at this time. Let 
us work with the people of Worcester to make this a first-rate 
medical school. This is what we are here for today and we should 
vote not to reconsider, but to proceed to build the medical school 
in Worcester," 

The Secretary was instructed, once again to read the 
motion by Trustee Emerson carried over from the recessed meeting of 
July 28, 1965 and this was done. 

Trustee We Id on observed that there were three possi- 
bilities for taking a vote. These consisted of the following: 

a. By secret ballot 

b. By roll call 

c. By a combination, whereby ballots 
would be distributed and the 
Trustees would put their names on 
the ballots, the same to be read 
later. He expressed the view that 
the third method would provide an 
opportunity for persons to vote in- 
dependently. 

Trustee Healey sgreed with the Bishop that a written, 
signed ballot is good; but he noted that this procedure is at 
variance with that used by Congress and the Legislature. 

Trustee Healey then moved, it wa.s seconded, and 
unanimously 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees proceed to take 
p vote on the reconsideration question by 
roll call vote. 

The Secretary was then instructed to call the roll. The 
roll call followed on the motion of July 2$, 1965 as set forth 
be] ow:

school, and that we are looking to make it a superior medical 
school. He acknowledged that the Board cannot, by itself, make a 
superior medical school. ' 

Trustee Weldon quoted from the statement of Academic 
Deans as presented at the meeting of July 28, 1965, indicating 
that "failure to reconsider your decision of June 11 is certain 
to produce a demoralizing effect on both faculty and students. 
Prolonged conflict between faculty and Trustees may unhappily re- 
sult, and we deans would be grossly irresponsible if we neglected 
to mention this unpleasant - yet real - possibility." 

"I think that we ought to indicate that we feel there is 
no need for prolonged conflict," Bishop Weldon stated, "and that, 
just as the members of the Board of Trustees have closed ranks to 
get totally and wholeheartedly and unconditionally behind this, so 
ought it to be p©s" S »iB l 2e- for men of vision and goodwill and good 
faith on the faculty to do likewise." 

It was moved, seconded and unanimously 

VOTED ; To transmit to the faculty at once the 
statement by Bishop Weldon calling for 
harmony and accord between the Board 
of Trustees, the Deans and the Faculty 
of the University. 

This statement (Document 66-014. by Trustee Weldon w^ic>i 
was sent to the faculty) is hereby attached to and made a part of 
these minutes. 

Trustee Gordon expressed his pleasure at the expressions 
of unity and harmonv which had just been given. President Tederle 
indicated that ^e "would loyally carry out the mandate of the Board 
of Trustees to establish the best possible Medical School in the 
City of Worcester." 

Chairman Boyden cited the words "quality, loyalty and 
dedicate on" as characterizing the expressions of accord P/nd harmony 
which would be brought to bear to establish "the greatest medical 
school any where in the United States."

Re Medical 
School 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Chairman Troy presented a report for the Faculty and 
Program of Study Committee meeting held jointly this morning with 
the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. He stated that the planning 
stages for the establishment of the Medical School would take 
approximately five years. 

Discussion followed on matters contained in several 
documents including the following: "Plans for the Development of 
the Medical School and Recruitment of Faculty, September 1965" 
(Document 66-019); also Document 66-020, Medical School Budget for 
fiscal year 1966, and Document 66-021, Budget for the Medical 
School for fiscal year 1967. These documents are herewith attached 
to and made a part of these minutes. 

Chairman Haigis reported for the Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds. At his invitation, representatives of Sasaki, Dawson, 
DeMay Associates, Inc. gave a verbal and slide presentation 
illustrating their evaluations of the Worcester State Hospital area 
as a potential site for location of the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School. 

A written report entitled "Site Evaluation, University 
of Massachusetts Medical School, prepared by the Sasaki firm was 
distributed to the Trustees. 

Following brief discussion, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That the Worcester State Hospital lands 
offered by Commissioner Solomon of the 
Department of Mental Health be accepted, 
and that the preliminary verbal recommendations 
of Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates, Inc. be 
pursued with reference to such contiguous 
lands as may be appropriate. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve the 1965-66 Capital Budget for 
the School of Medicine at the adjusted 
total of $2,432,000.

for appointment. Should these firms be 
unable to accept the commission, alternate 
recommendations would be in order: 

1. Campbell, Aldrich and Nulty of Boston 
associated with Rosenfield and Rosen- 
field of New York. 

2. Hugh Stubbins Associates of Boston 
associated with Smith, Hinchman and

And it was further 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the 1967 fiscal 
year budget for the Medical School at 
the figure of $600,798 (Document 66-021). 

President Lederle commented that an opening convocation 
for UM/Boston was being projected for sometime this fall, and that 
it might be desirable to award a few honorary degrees to highly 
selected individuals on that occasion. In view of shortness of 
time, he felt it would be desirable to authorize the Executive 
Committee to act for the Board on this matter. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Executive Committee of the Board 
of Trustees would take up the question of 
whether or not honorary degrees should be 
awarded at the UM/Boston convocation, and 
to whom these degrees would be given.

time he was Secretary of the University) had developed revisions 
to an advanced state, but that the Special Committee of the Board 
on By-Laws had become inactive. 

The Secretary was instructed to pull together existing 
material related to the revision of the By-Laws and circulate this 
material to the Board of Trustees.

as two years might elapse in preparing detailed plans with archi- 
tects for construction of the Medical School before application 
could be filed with the Department of Health, Education and Welfare 
National Science Foundation, etc. for matching funds to aid in con- 
struction. He said that Mr. Ellerbe, however, assured him that 
this period might be cut back to approximately a year and a half. 
This timetable could be achieved by setting up a Boston office of 
the two cooperating architectural firms, Ellerbe and Architects 
Collaborative, so that a minimum of time would be lost in the ex- 
change of vital data and information. A six months waiting period 
would then ensue while the Federal apnlications were processed. 
During that period of time, architects could complete their de- 
tails of their drawings, and at the end of the six months' period 
a partial allocation of Federal funds might be expected. 

Following this, approximately two years would be required 
for construction of the buildings. An additional year might be in- 
volved in equipping them. Providing the University was able to get 
underway with the appointment of architects and funds are annro- 
priated by December, 1965, the timetable would call for completion 
of the Medical School building and hospital by April, 1970. A 
small class might be entered in the fall of that year. 

Dean Soutter reported that he ^ad identified a prospectiv^ 
librarian, and that as soon as monies became available, he hoped to 
appoint a hospital director. Gradually other members of the staff 
would be added to move the Medical School nroject forward. 

He reported that a meeting involving himself and Trustee 
Croce with the Worcester District Medical Society had been held to 
determine whether any kind of cooperative program could be de- 
veloped between the society library. This is a small, but 
distinguished medical library, the third oldest in the country. 
The conclusion was that the matter would be explored further.

Report of the

Activities 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dr. Croce added that the meeting with the Trustees of the 
Worcester Medical Library was held in a most cordial atmosphere, 
and that the Trustees approved in principle the amalgamation of the 
Worcester Medical Library with the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School Library at the appropriate time. 

The report of the Committee on Recognized Student 
Activities was presented a by Trustee Thompson. He reported that a 
highly successful meeting was held with student leaders on 
October 19, 1965. No quorum was present. However, he, Trustee 
Rowland and Trustee Haigis sat for an extended period to discuss 
student- faculty- trustee-administration relationahips. He expressed 
admiration for the level in which the discussion was conducted by 
the students, headed by Student Senate President Richard Dacey. 
He reported that the students were favorable to the idea of a 
coordination of student media activities on the campus under some 
form of committee or board. He stated that a report of the students 
ad hoc Committee on Student Communications Media would be available 
early in December, and would be brought to the attention of the 
Trustees. 

Trustee Thompson suggested the establishment of an ad hoc 
committee comprised of Trustees Haigis and Lyons along with 
Secretary McCartney, persons who had had some background and 
familiarity with problems in communications and publications. 

Mrs. Rowland reported that she was extremely impressed 
with the caliber of the students and with their poise and in- 
telligence. She did not favor, however, the appointment of an 
ad hoc committee of trustees and administrators to work with the 
students on the grounds that this might be misinterpreted as super- 
imposing a committee of trustees upon them at this time. She hoped 
that the trustees would wait to receive the report of the ad hoc 
student committee. At this point, the student group could be asked 
whether they wished to have trustees and administration work in 
cooperation with them. 

Trustee Haigis indicated that this was the finest meeting 
with students which the Trustees have ever had. He heartily 
endorsed Trustee Thompson's indication that additional meetings 
would be held with student leaders in the future. 

Trustee Maginnis said he hoped that the Trustees would 
not become involved with the students on a formalized basis, as 
these problems related strictly to responsibilities of the Ad- 
ministration. Trustee Thompson responded that the students had 
asked for guidance and had solicited cooperation. There is no in- 
tention of superimposing ideas upon them, he said.

President Iederle commented that the problem is that 
students, faculty and administration see too little of each other 
and have too few opportunities to exchange views and arrive at a 
deeper understanding of objectives. He expressed the hope that 
this climate might be achieved by frequent informal contacts and 
by working through regularly established committees of the Board, 
rather than setting up a special ad hoc committee. 

Personnel Actions were brought to the attention of the 
Board by President Lederle. Upon motion duly made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the personnel 

actions as set forth in Document 66-036,

not be designated by any job group 
number or grade. 

President Lederle commented on the new monthly reports 
on gifts and grants: also the presentation of a monthly project 
progress report on building construction now being sent to the 
Board of Trustees. 

Chairman Boyden expressed the hope that all Trustees 
would make an effort to accept the dinner invitation extended by 
the Worcester Chamber of Commerce to the Board of Trustees for the 
evening of November 22. 

The meeting was adjourned at 4-: 38 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



By general consent and in deference to other obligations 
on the part of Attorney Broadhurst and Architect Stubbins, it was 
agreed to take up Item 7 on the agenda. University Building 
Authority - Project #8 Dormitories. After a brief presentation 
by Attorney Broadhurst, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That Whereas University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority (the Authority) is 
authorized by Chapter 773 of the Acts of 
1960, as amended, among other things, to 
provide dormitories, dining commons and 
other buildings and structures for the use 
of the University of Massachusetts (the 
University) , its staff and their dependents 
and, upon written request made by authority 
of the Trustees (the Trustees) of the Uni- 
versity, to initiate projects determined by 
the Trustees to be designed primarily to

Whereas in addition to the dormitory and 
dining facilities provided or to be provided 
by buildings now constructed or under con- 
struction in said Southwest Residence 
Quadrangle, dormitory facilities for approxi- 
mately 1,100 students are also required in 
said Southwest Residence Quadrangle; Now, 
Therefore 

Be It Resolved That John W. Lederle, presi- 
dent of the University, be and he hereby is 
authorized in the name and on behalf of the 
Trustees to make a written request of the

Treasurer Johnson next introduced Mr. Hugh Stubbins who 
presented to the Board complete plans for the Project 8 Dormi- 
tories along Sunset Avenue in the Southwest complex. Mr. Stubbins 
indicated that these were intended to be completed for etceupancjy 
in September, 1967. • , 

By way of explanation, Mr. Stubbins indicated that 
Project 4 was the first in the Southwest complex, consisting of 
four low- rise and two high-rise dormitories. Project 5 was a 
dining hall. Project 6 consisted of three additional high-rise 
dormitories, now topped off, housing 1728 students, designed for 
occupancy in September, 1966. Project 7, he said, is the second 
dining hall proposed to seat 1100 students for occupancy in 
September, 1966. Project 8 — the one he now presents — will 
consist of four low-rise buildings on the east boundary of the 
project, bordering Sunset Avenue. These buildings will house 1072 
students for a total within the overall project, by September, 
1967, of 4685 students. Additionally, one more dining hall and 
additional dormitories to house 1000 students will be constructed 
at a later date. 

Mr. Stubbins left with the Board of Trustees a series of 
drawings of Project 8 so that they might be inspected. The total 
budget for the project, including furnishings plus 5% for con- 
tingencies, is set at $5,685,000 less financing charges. 

Treasurer Johnson noted that all of the southwest 
project facilities are self- liquidating, being paid for from stu- 
dent rentals. In terms of amortization, the Treasurer indicated 
that the $350 rental fee was quite close to the line, but that the 
overall projects looked quite feasible. 

After brief discussion, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That the working drawings and detail 

specifications presented to this meeting 
and prepared by Hugh Stubbins and 
Associates, Inc. for the dormitory build- 
ings to be constructed by University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority as its 
Eighth Project, pursuant to request made 
by authority from the trustees of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts voted December 14, 
1965, be and hereby are approved; that the 
approaches, driveways, parking areas, plant- 
ing and landscaping shown and described in 
said drawings and specifications be and here- 
by are approved; and that John W. Lederle, 
President, and Kenneth W. Johnson, ".Tr&asurer 
of the University, be and each acting alone 
hereby is authorized to endorse the approval 
hereby given upon one or more sets of said 
working drawings and detail specifications.

Report of 
Committee on 
Buildings and 
Grounds 

Recommendation 
to Purchase 
UM/Boston 
Building 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Attorney Broadhurst noted, that until the Legislature 
authorizes further bonding, there is no need for the Trustees to 
vote upon a contract for financial assistance. He added that the 
University Building Authority may ask for construction bids, even 
though the bids may not be awarded until after the Legislature has 
authorized an increase in the bonding. He estimated that the 
project would leave just a bit over $30 per student for operating 
and maintenance. 

In the absence of the Committee Chairman, Treasurer 
Johnson presented the report of the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds. He invited the President to comment on the proposed pur- 
chase of the UM/Boston building. 

President Lederle observed that the Buildings and 
Grounds Committee was recommending purchase of the UM/Boston build- 
ing, not because of a recent report of the State Auditor, but be- 
cause the question had been studied for a long period of time 
dating back to the Heller Report. He noted that competitive bids 
had been received on the site on the basis of lease or purchase. 
After bids had been received, the University was advised that the 
most favorable quotation had been entered by Eastern Gas & Fuel 
Associates. The Governor and Legislature were thereupon advised 
and were fully aware that the building was leased for five years 
with option to purchase. Subsequently, a bill was passed by the 
Legislature directing that a proposal for purchase of the property 
be worked out by February, 1966. Actual purchase, of course, de- 
pends on a subsequent legislative appropriation. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That it be and hereby is declared to be 
the judgment of the Board of Trustees of 
the University of Massachusetts that the 
acquisition of the premises at 100 
Arlington Street and 250 Stuart Street, 
Boston, Massachusetts, is necessary or de- 
sirable to provide for the continued opera- 
tion of a Boston Branch of the University; 
that, in accordance with Chapter 388 of the 
Acts of 1965, the president and the treasurer 
of the University be, and each officer acting 
alone hereby is authorized, upon the availa- 
bility of an appropriation or other funds for 
the purpose, to exercise in the name of the 
Commonwealth and of the University the option 
to purchase said premises contained in the 
lease dated May 5, 1965 thereof, and to pur- 
chase the same, upon the terms and under the 
conditions specified therefor in such lease 
and to execute and deliver such documents

and instruments and to do such things and 
take such action as shall, to the officer 
so acting seem, as conclusively evidenced 
by his taking the action hereby authorized, 
necessary or desirable to be executed, de- 
livered, done or taken to carry into effect 
the exercise of said option and said pur- 
chase as hereby authorized. 

It was also 

VOTED : That the President and Treasurer of the Uni- 
versity be, and each acting alone hereby is, 
authorized in the name and behalf of the Uni- 
versity to sign, file and prosecute such 
application or applications with the Depart- 
ment of Health, Education and Welfare, in- 
cluding any agency authorized by the Depart- 
ment to administer grant programs at the state 
level, for a grant or grants under the Higher 
Education Facilities Act of 1963 (Public Lav/ 
88-204) for the purpose of meeting all or any 
part of the cost of acquiring, altering, re- 
constructing or remodelling the facilities at 
100 Arlington Street and 250 Stuart Street in 
Boston, Massachusetts, occupied by the Univer- 
sity as its Boston Branch, each such applica- 
tion to be in such form and to be accompanied 
by such exhibits and additional information as 
may be required by the governmental agency con- 
cerned; and that the execution and delivery by 
such officer of any such application shall be 
conclusive evidence that the same was 
authorized by this vote. 

Treasurer Johnson next introduced the capital outlay 
budget for 1967. The details of this budget, Document 66-O4.I, 
were reviewed in detail for the Board of Trustees by the Provost 
and the Treasurer. 

Provost Tippo stressed that the number one priority was 
planning money for the Library in the amount of $375,000. He 
noted that the Library presently had approximately 375,000 volumes 
and 1,000,000 volumes were required at the earliest possible date. 

Trustee Troy expressed shock that the $375,000 in 
planning money for the Library had been eliminated from the 1966 
budget especially in view of the fact that it v/as the University's 
number one priority. He queried whether there might be any chance 
to restore this item. President Lederle responded that every 
effort had been made to restore the library planning fund, but the 
Legislature had dropped it. This involved a loss of lead time of 
one year for the University, affecting the momentum of the entire

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

institution. He expressed disappointment that priorities set by 
the Board of Trustees were set aside by legislative action. 
Trustee Kiernan noted that the Board of Higher Education Policy 
report sent to the Governor on December 14 endorsed strongly the 
$375,000 planning money for the University of Massachusetts 
Library. 

It was noted by members of the Board that, as the stu- 
dent enrollment increases, the University accumulates a backlog 
of capital outlay projects for which appropriations have not been 
made. Trustee Healey indicated that an overall view of the 
projected development of the University/Amherst ought to be under- 
taken in relation to plans for UM/Boston and the Medical School in 
Worcester. 

Provost Tippo stated that Planning Officer Littlefield 
had been requested to make calculations on campus floor space 
required in relation to present and future enrollments. 



To date, these calculations show the following: 

For the fall of 1966 — deficit of 186,200 sq. ft. 
For the fall of 1967 — deficit of 390,000 sq. ft. 
For the fall of 1969 — deficit of 500,000 sq. ft. 

Treasurer Johnson observed that the Committee on Build- 
ings and Grounds had spent much time reviewing this entire matter, 
He noted that Trustee Gordon recommended presenting to the Legis- 
lature a long-range projection of exactly the amount of funds re- 
quired each year to meet the enrollment projections for both 
capital and operating purposes. Such projections are now being 
developed, but the Treasurer warned that inflation in the economy 
could throw off present estimates of funds required for projects 
to be built some years hence. 

It was noted that the University of California allots 
215 square feet per student, such space to include teaching, re- 
search and office facilities. 

Provost Tippo emphasized that, in terms of the Amherst 
campus only, and in terms of present costs, that capital expendi- 
tures of $10,000,000 per year would be required for each 1500 
students added. 

After further discussion, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the capital budget request for 
1967 as detailed in Document 66-0/41 which 
document is herewith attached to and made 
a part of these minutes.

two acres of land at the request of 
Mr. Winkler to use for the construction 
of a personal domicile, and providing 
for a 60-foot land corridor at the north

Chairman pro tern Plimpton reported for the Executive

seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the final list of nominees for 
honorary degrees at Commencement 1966 sub- 
mitted by the Executive Committee (Document

and placed on file in the Office of the 
President. 

Chairman Troy reported for the Committee on Faculty and 
Program of Study. The principal item of business was a proposed 
application for an educational television license for the Uni- 
versity. 

Trustee Troy indicated that the interest of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts in educational television was long-standing, 
growing out of the educational need to offer closed circuit in- 
struction in speech, theatre and dramatic arts as well as in 
education; also from the point of view of exerting cultural in- 
fluence in western Massachusetts (and, potentially, throughout 
the Commonwealth) by relaying programs of an educational and 
cultural nature to the general public. He pointed out also that 
educational television could have an important bearing on the 
field of continuing education as the University develops programs 
in this area, where television could serve as an educational out- 
reach device to enlarge the scope of citizen participation. 

It was noted that the sum of $200,000 was already re- 
served in University funds for the purpose of implementing educa- 
tional television facilities, and that this amount would be matched 
by Federal funds. He added that Channel 57 or 5& had been re- 
served by the FCC for assignment to the Springfield area. He 
pointed out that the Commonwealth had undertaken a state-wide study 
on funds amounting to $50,000 allocated by the Department of Educa- 
tion, for the purpose of exploring the feasibility of establishing 
a state-wide educational television system. Preliminary results 
of this survey showed that the University of Massachusetts would 
be a logical license holder, and could operate facilities from 
nearby Mt. Tom.

After further discussion and upon motion made and

Faculty and Program of Study. He noted that the Four College radio 
station, WFCR-FM was in need of having its license transferred to 
some authority other than WGBH in Boston, where the license is 
presently held. It has been suggested that the University of Massa. 
chusetts assume this license. Trustee Troy reminded the Board 
that the question of the University assuming an educational tele-

Chairman Troy also reported on a meeting of the Committee 
on Faculty and Program of Study held January 11, 1966. With 
reference to the cooperative doctoral programs between the state 
colleges, technological institutes and the University of Massachu- 
setts outlined in the Willis Report, the Chairman presented a docu- 
ment "Standards and Procedures for Doctoral Programs of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, " which he indicated was drawn up with the 
intent of insuring and maintaining standards of excellence in the 
University's awarding of the doctoral degree. He noted that the 
draft now before the Board had been approved by the University 
Graduate Council in October of 1965. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously

graduation and 5$ thereafter or as may be

in keeping with other loan programs. 

It was further

Chairman Healey explained the need of the University to 
have a personnel protection liability insurance policy. He 
pointed out that trustees, students and employees utilizing their 
own and University vehicles on authorized official business of 
the University have had inadequate coverage in the event of acci- 
dent while driving a motor vehicle. He said that the University 
was now able to obtain coverage on the basis of $500,000/$l,000,000 
personal injury and $25,000 property damage at a net, total 
premium of $7,148.99 which is the lowest of six bids received. 
This would be excess coverage over and above insurance already 
carried by the individual. Trustee Pumphret complimented the Uni- 
versity on obtaining such a favorable contract. 

There followed further discussion and, upon motion made 
and seconded, it was unanimously 

* In the event that the income from said fund 
is not disbursed during the current fiscal 
year, it may be returned to principal at the 
discretion of the Department" Head of Women's 
Physical Education.

ing designed by the architectural firm 
of Drummey, Rosane & Anderson and com- 
pleted on contract by the firm of A. J. 
Martini, Inc. 

Chairman Haigis' next turned to the University Library, 
stating that this project should continue to receive top priority. 
He invited University Librarian Montgomery to introduce Messrs. 
Edward Durell Stone and his assistants, Stanley Torkelsen and 
Edward Stevens; also Mr. Warren Haas, Associate Director of 
Libraries at Columbia University, who is serving as library con- 
sultant to the University. 

Mr. Montgomery indicated that the Library Committee is 
satisfied with the preliminary sketches prepared by Architect Stone. 
These sketches project the building as a 28-story tower set on a 
podium. The tower contains interlayed floors of book stacks and 
study rooms. 

The Librarian indicated that existing library space on 
the campus will be filled within the next two years. Seating 
capacity for the new University Library is planned at 3,000. 

A series of slides and drawings were next presented by 
Architect Stone. Following this, Mr, Haas presented his views. 
He stated that the new skyscraper design was exciting, and that it 
had caught the imagination of many librarians around the nation who 
have previewed the preliminary sketches. 

The University Library will have good staff space. It 
will be easy to use for the large number of individuals it is in- 
tended to accommodate. Alternate study and book storage space in 
the tower represents an exciting departure in design. Traffic 
circulation will be expedited by the single entrance. Students and 
staff will be accommodated by five elevators, programmed to operate 
with only a 45-second delay. There will be 64 carrels per floor; — 
more than 1400 carrels in total. The Library is intended to 
accommodate 1.4 million volumes initially with conversion space 
available to raise the total to 2 million volumes in years to come. 

After further discussion and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To accept the preliminary sketches of the 
University Library as presented by Archi- 
tect Edward Durell Stone, and as recommended 
by the University's library consultant, 
Mr. Warren Haas of Columbia University.

one year only. 

Trustee Gordon urged the pursuit of foundation support 
for the Freiburg project so that it might continue after one year.

of charges contained in the Freiburg Proposal Budget. Discussion

persons other than University of Massachusetts students and it was 
agreed that this should be dropped.

VOTED : In accordance with the provisions of 

section 32-A of Chapter 75 of the General 
Laws that Robert J. Parker is appointed 
as an auxiliary police officer to serve 
during his term of employment by the Uni- 
versity subject to termination of this 
appointment by the Board of Trustees. 

At the invitation of the President, Treasurer Johnson pre- 
sented a document detailing gifts and grants to the University for 
the period July-December, 1965 in the amount of $1,625,795.91. 

Treasurer Johnson called special attention to a recent 
major gift of a library from the estate of G. Howland Shaw. The 
Treasurer noted that the gift involves 7,567 volumes, most of them 
in excellent condition, with significant sets and collections which 
the Library does not have at the present time. The Library staff 
has appraised the value of this collection in excess of $15,000. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : To accept the gift of the G. Howland 
Shaw Library Collection, and to re- 
quest the President to direct an appro- 
priate letter of appreciation to the 
executives of the estate. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : Whereas: the University of Massachusetts has 
made tremendous strides forward in recent 
years, through the benefits of fiscal 
accountability and autonomy and the support 
of the Governor and the General Court, and 

Whereas: in the past four years, under fiscal 
accountability and autonomy granted the 
University, there has developed improved 
morale, better recruiting, and much less 
turn-over among the professional staff, and 

Whereas: the fiscal management of University 
affairs has shown clear evidence of pro- 
viding greater economy and efficiency in 
the support of the academic program of the 
University under fiscal accountability and 
autonomy, and 

Whereas: the Special Commission Established to 
Make an Investigation and Study Relative to 
Improving and Extending Educational Facili- 
ties in the Commonwealth found great value in 
having fiscal accountability and autonomy 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



with the educational institutions of the 
State, and recommended the uninterrupted 
continuation of such authority, and 

Whereas: the General Court and the Governor, 
in enacting and signing Chapter 572, Acts 
of 1965, extending and improving educa- 
tional facilities in the Commonwealth, 
therein approved and endorsed the continua- 
tion of fiscal accountability and autonomy 
to the State educational institutions, 

Therefore, be it resolved: that the Board of 
Trustees of the University of Massachusetts 
hereby reaffirms its firm support of fiscal 
accountability and autonomy as being 
essential to the continued growth and de- 
velopment of public higher education. 

It was also 

VOTED : Whereas: recruitment efforts thus far for the 
University Medical School have clearly shown 
it is impossible to obtain qualified staff 
within the present General State Salary 
Schedule with its ceiling limit of $21,372, 
and 

Whereas: there are strong, growing indications 
that it will be virtually impossible to re- 
cruit or keep certain essential faculty 
members and academic administrators under 
the limitations of the General State Salary 
Schedule, and 

Whereas: nearly all leading state universities 
in the nation do not have similar restrictive 
limitations upon their governing boards in 
setting appropriate and necessary salary 
ranges for selected leading members of their 
staff, and 

Whereas: it is our firm .intent to establish and 
operate a first-class Medical School for the 
Commonwealth, and 

Whereas: it is our continued resolve to develop 
for the people of Massachusetts a State Uni- 
versity worthy of taking its rightful position 
of leadership and respect among state univer- 
sities of the nation, and

Whereas: some reasonable measure of relief 
from present restrictive limitations on 
salary ranges is necessary for the Trustees 
to be able to appoint and retain outstand- 
ing teachers and academicians, 



Therefore, be it resolved: the Board of Trustees 
of the University of Massachusetts hereby en- 
dorses Senate bill S.96, filed by Senate Presi- 
dent Donahue, with the proviso that said legis- 
lation should clearly provide exemption from 
current Schedule ceiling for the staff of the 
Medical School and for two percentum of the re- 
maining members of the professional staff of 
the University. The Board of Trustees further 
declares it has no opposition to amendments of 
said bill for the purpose of including therein 
other public institutions of higher education 
which may face similar critical problems of 
obtaining and retaining high level academic 
leadership and staff, as provided for in H.324 
filed by Representative Allan McGuane. The 
Board urges the members of the General Court 
to support and enact such legislation as an 
essential step toward the continued growth 
and development of the University and of public 
higher education in the Commonwealth. 

It was also 



Civil Service 
for Non- 
Professional 
Employees 



VOTED : That the Board of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts hereby reaffirms its support of 
those General Laws which exempt the University 
and other institutions of public higher educa- 
tion from civil service laws. Such legislation 
for the University was passed in 1947, and was 
reaffirmed in the so-called Willis Commission 
bill of 1965. 



The University has a personnel system uniquely 
designed to assure fair and equitable treatment 
for its non-professional employees. The Board 
believes it is in the best interests of the 
Commonwealth to continue the University personnel 
system presently in effect. 

The University of Massachusetts Board of Trustees 
therefore wishes to be recorded in opposition to 
H.296. 



It was also 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



VOTED : Whereas: the University of Massachusetts, as a 
land -grant State University was established 
under the Morrill Act of 1863, and 

Whereas: the growth of the University of Massa- 
chusetts has been materially aided by the 
continued and firm support provided by the 
Congress under the various acts designed to 
support instruction, research and extension 
in such institutions and 

Whereas: the proposed drastic reduction of 
these levels of support and the unwarranted 
shift of the bases of allocation has not 
been justified by convincing evidence as 
to need or wisdom, 

Therefore, be it resolved: that the Board of 
Trustees of the University of Massachusetts 
hereby petitions the members of Congress, 
especially those members from the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, for their 
favorable action to restore to previous 
levels of support and to a state alloca- 
tion basis the proposed appropriations to 
be made under the Morrill-Nelson and 
Bahkhead- Jones Acts, the Hatch Act, as 
amended, and the Smith-Lever Act. 

President Lederle reported that two meetings of the new 
Board of Higher Education have been held. The Board of Trustees' 
delegate, Trustee Healey, attended the first meeting; but un- 
avoidably missed the second one. President Lederle, who is a 
member of the Advisory Commission to the Board of Higher Education, 
attended both. The President noted that the Board of Higher Edu- 
cation is getting underway in a very satisfactory manner. Meetings 
will be held on the third Friday of each month. The Board of 
Higher Education has already very helpfully adopted resolutions 
supporting fiscal autonomy and the University's bill to lift the 
salary ceiling. 

The meeting was adjourned at 4:00 p.m.

PRESENT BY 

INVITATION : Professor William Havard, Head 

of the Department of Government, 

representing the University 

Faculty Senate. 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of fgustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Vice Chairman at 2:00 p.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
February 21, 1966. 

In the temporary absence of President Lederle who was 
testifying at a State House hearing, the Vice Chairman deferred 
Item 3 on the agenda, "President's Comments." 

Chairman Haigis of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
stated that his would be only a brief report of progress. Archi- 
tects for the Medical School have been appointed. Discussions con- 
tinue between Dean Soutter of the Medical School and Mr. Ellerbe 
who is preparing the program and the specifications for the appli- 
cation for federal funds. 

With respect to a permanent location for University of 
Massachusetts/Boston, Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates are now work- 
ing with Chancellor Ryan in evaluating the city site. 

Chairman Troy of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy reported that his committee had met on March 10 with Dean of 
Admissions William Tunis who had outlined the scope of the 
admissions operation. Between 1961 and 1965, for example, fresh- 
man applications rose from 6,502 to 14,123. In the same period, 
transfer applications rose from 878 to 2,031. As of March 8, 1966, 
Dr. Tunis reported that he had received 18,217 applications for the 
entering class in September of 1966. It is expected that this 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

number of applications will rise to 20,000. Approximately 4,000 
to 5,000 of these applications are for UM/Boston. 

Dr. Tunis also reported on the annual program of high 
school visits in which the state is divided into four sectors, 
with one admissions officer assigned to each quadrant. All public 
high schools and selected parochial high schools are visited and a 
realistic picture presented concerning admissions opportunities at 
the University. 

It is expected that 3,100 freshman students will be ad- 
mitted on the Amherst campus next fall. The University takes those 
with the highest scores, but this must be adjusted within a "roll- 
ing admissions policy." Some students with high scores may have 
the University listed as second or third choice. 

It was suggested that Dean Tunis might appear before the 
full Board to present in detail the complexities of the admissions 
program. It was noted that the Admissions Office maintains a firm 
line against outside pressures for admission from special interest 
groups . 

Further questions concerned the existence of a faculty 
committee to work with the Dean of Admissions; also, the question 
of whether UM/Boston will become relatively autonomous in terms of 
admitting students to that campus. Chairman Troy noted that these 
issues had not been discussed in detail. 

Provost Tippo commented that we are equally swamped in 
applications for the Graduate School with 20,000 inquiries on hand 
for 1,000 openings. 

The Provost was next invited to comment on a proposal to 
establish University College, v/hich has been described as a refine- 
ment and extension of the concept of the residential college 
systems already in effect within the University. Dr. Tippo stated 
that when the committee was first formed they thought that perhaps 
a minor modification of the present residential college concept 
would be adequate. As they got deeper into the problem, the feel- 
ing was unanimous that a completely new start should be made. The 
plan now calls for a completely separate residential college with 
its own faculty, own dean, own living and dining facilities and 
some classrooms — essentially a small college for 1,000 students. 
Special science courses would be available for non-science majors 
along with courses of a broader nature . The Provost indicated 
that this might well lead to more effective faculty recruiting and 
to more rapid building construction. He noted that many young men 
would be eager to join such a venture as faculty members. He said 
that the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy had voted to 
approve in principle the concept of creating University College, 
subject to appropriate financing and legal clearances.

Dr. Tippo reported that I. M. Pei, the noted architect 
selected by the Building Authority, will meet on Thursday, March 17, 
with the faculty committee for University College to discuss plans. 
After further discussion, it was brought out that the time is now 
ripe for the Trustees to look at the broad question of where the 
University of Massachusetts is heading in the years to come with 
respect to the development of courses, size of UM/Amherst and 
UM/Boston within a long-range framework including the financial 
implications. It was agreed that a day would be set aside for a 
Trustee meeting revolving around these questions sometime between 
May and early fall. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve in principle the concept of 
creating University College, subject to 
the availability of financing and any 
necessary legislative approval, as out- 
lined in Document 66-061, which document 
is herewith attached to and made a part 
of these minutes. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve the adoption of the new graduate 
level courses detailed under Section A of 
Document 66-058, which document is herewith 
attached to and made a part of these minutes. 

It was further 

VOTED : To approve the two-semester sequence in 
Chemistry: General Chemistry for non- 
science majors - 101 (I) and General 
Chemistry for non-science majors - 102 (II). 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve all other undergraduate courses 
detailed in Section B, paragraphs 2,3,4,5, 
6,7 and 8 in Document 66-058. 

President Lederle reported on two hearings he had 
attended at the State House, including this morning's hearing on 
the Salary Relief Bill. He expressed a strong hope that the bill 
to repeal fiscal autonomy for the University and other state insti- 
tutions will not pass. With respect to the Salary Relief Bill, he 
said that Trustees Lyons and Troy were present; also, representa- 
tives of the State Colleges, technological institutes and the League 
of Women Voters. It is now important that a delegation of Trustees 
press the Governor and the leadership of the House and the Senate 
with the crucial importance of this bill. A modest amount of money 
is involved. Without passage of the bill it will not be possible 
to establish a Medical School. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To leave with the Chairman of the Board 
the authority to delegate members of the 
Board who will be asked to attend the 
meeting of the Association of Governing 
Boards of Colleges and Universities at 
the University of Kentucky, May 1-3; also, 
a conference at the Center for the Study 
of Democratic Institutions to be held in 
California. 

Brief discussion followed on the desirability of changing 
the date for the April meeting due to a number of conflicts in 
schedule. The date decided upon is April 21, 1966. It was de- 
cided to invite Dean Tunis to appear before the Board and present 
a summary of the admissions picture. 

With respect to the 1967 budget recommendations pre- 
sented to the Governor by the Board of Trustees, Treasurer Johnson 
reported that the picture is not at all good. Our budget was 
based on 1,310 new students at Amherst next fall; only the 88 
teaching positions have been approved and v/e are provided in- 
sufficient funds to appoint them based on our prior experience. 
Furthermore, there are no additional non- teaching positions, and 
we are already far short on support staff. 

, For Amherst, we recommended a budget of $29,4-03,307; the 
Governor recommends $23,164,500. The request for Boston was based 
on 1,000 additional students next fall. V/e requested $2,953,188; 
the Governor recommends $2,193,500. 

For the Medical School, we requested $600,798 to develop 
a staff of department heads and library technicians; the Governor 
recommends $120,000. 

For library books, we requested for Amherst $450,000; the 
Governor recommends $200,000. Library funds were requested at 
$100,000 for UM/Boston; this has been cut to $50,000. 

The Treasurer noted that an entirely new program of 
scholarships and loans has been developed by Congress during the 
past year under the Higher Education Act. These funds, in addi- 
tion to NDEA loans, nursing loans, etc. would normally provide 
substantial amount of federal funds for the University. 

The Treasurer reported that as much as $1,000,000 
in federal matching funds were involved, but that these would be- 
come available only if we kept up the level of state support that 
existed in prior years. The Commonwealth's commitment last year 
was $396,400. This has been cut by $50,000 for 1967, thus 
jeopardizing our access to large sums of federal money.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

In general, the Treasurer noted that the cutbacks in our 
budget are higher at the present time than in any previous year. 
For the second year in a row we have taken additional students 
without sufficient support staffs; we have been given teaching 
positions only. 

The Treasurer stated that the situation was extremely 
serious and would require extensive analysis to determine how the 
University could accept 2,310 students and meet its commitments. 

There followed a discussion concerning the relative 
standing of Massachusetts public higher education nationally in 
terms of per capita support. President Lederle stated that 
national statistics from Washington indicate that we are 50th in 
per capita support of public higher education, whereas Massachusetts 
is 9th or 10th in per capita income. He noted, however, that 80% 
of our young people go to private colleges or universities and 20%, 
to public institutions. In Michigan, he said, the reverse is true: 
80% go to public institutions; 20% to private institutions. The 
key point here, the President observed, is that our excellent 
private college and university establishment does not plan to ex- 
pand in the future. Although we have some of the best private 
institutions in the nation, their focus is national in scope and 
they are reducing their Massachusetts intake. According to Dean 
Bender, for example, Harvard College came down from ~}b% Massachu- 
setts enrollment in 1952 to 21% in 1960. 

Treasurer Johnson observed that we must have some 
evidence of restitution on the part of the Legislature with respect 
to our budget request or the Board of Trustees will be faced with 
a policy decision of cutting back on the admission of students. 
It was noted that the Legislature does increase appropriations to 
the University each year, but only by a certain fixed percentage 
and this is not sufficient to accommodate our burgeoning enroll- 
ments. The Board of Higher Education has been established too re- 
cently to focus effectively on this problem for some time to come. 

Further discussion centered around the development of a 
programmatic budget and the necessity for informing the Governor 
and the Legislature of the total dollar cost required to educate 
each 1,000 students: so many secretaries, so many janitors, so 
many grounds people, so many square feet of teaching and research 
space, etc. These requirements are real and are in addition to a 
quota of teaching positions. With respect to restitution money, 
the Treasurer noted that we do have a little added each year but 
never a sufficient amount to do a proper job. The University of 
Massachusetts/Boston, for example, is not yet staffed up to do the 
job that the Legislature has asked it to do. 

A request was made to develop a small digest of facts and 
figures to be made available to Trustees so that members of the 
Board would have the facts at their finger tips when talking to 
members of the Legislature and to the Governor.

Trustee Haigis commented that the same problem exists in 
the area of capital outlay. The Vice Chairman commented that the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts has been lulled into a false sense 
of security by virtue of the massive private educational establish- 
r-KusTss ment in its midst. It was agreed that "Facts of Life" conferences 
should be held as soon as possible with the Governor and the 
legislative leadership. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the graduate degrees 
awarded as of February 1, 1966 as detailed 
in Document 66-063, which document is here- 
with attached to and made a part of these

grees awarded as of February 1, 1966 as de- 
tailed in Document 66-062, which document is

minutes. 

President Lederle next presented the personnel actions. 
After brief discussion, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 
unanimously 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the personnel actions 
detailed in Document 66-059, together with 
supplements #1 and #2, which document and 
supplements are herewith attached to and 
made a part of these minutes.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Vice Chairman at 2:30 p.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
March 14, 1966, with change of the word 
"visitations" on page 2, line 2, to "visits." 

In the temporary absence of the President, Item 3, 
"President's Comments" was deferred. 

At the request of the Vice Chairman, Trustee Haigis pre- 
sented the report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 
unanimously 

VOTED : That the firm of Drummey, Rosane and 
Anderson be appointed to proceed with 
further designs for the renovation of 
the UM/Boston building. 

Committee Chairman Haigis next presented a series of pro- 
posed votes which would have the effect of creating a special resi- 
dence hall trust fund and provide for an increase in residence hall 
rates for both new and older buildings. 

Extensive discussion followed. Trustee Thompson stated 
that he felt the matter of creating the trust fund should be 
referred to the Attorney General's office for a ruling; also, that 
he favored limiting any rate increase to $50. In response to a 
query by the Vice Chairman, Treasurer Johnson replied that the 
legality of all of the proposals contained in the votes had been 
checked. In the opinion of the University's legal counsel, the

proposals are legal under existing statutes. The proposed votes 
drawn, by legal counsel having been moved and seconded, Trustee 
Thompson moved an amendment to limit the amount of residence hall 
increase to $50; also, to refer the matter of creating a residence 
hall trust fund to the Attorney General for an official ruling. 
It was decided to defer the latter question until a vote was taken 
on the amendment. The amendment was defeated. 



I 



Trustee Croce requested and obtained assurance that loans 
and other forms of financial aid to students will be forthcoming 
in cases where the rise in residence hall fees might create a 
hardship for students already enrolled. 

The motion to refer the matter of a residence hall trust 
fund to the office of the Attorney General was defeated. 

Treasurer Johnson emphasized that the key question is 
whether the residence hall program is to be carried on a self- 
liquidating basis. 

After further discussion, it was 

VOTED : That a trust fund be and hereby is established, 
under the name of "Residence Hall Trust Fund," 
for the operation of dormitories at the Univer- 
sity, other than those dormitory and apartment 
facilities owned by University of Massachusetts 
Buidling Authority, and that the Treasurer of the 
University be and he hereby is designated as the 
person to receive and disburse income derived 
from such operation. 

VOTED : That the following be and hereby is established 
as the schedule of charges to be in effect for 
periods commencing on or after the beginning of

President Lederle introduced Dean of Admissions William 
Tunis who presented a report on the current status of applications, 
projected admissions, and the guidelines which determine the ad- 
missions procedure. 

Dean Tunis noted that undergraduate enrollment had moved 
from 5,700 in the fall of '61 to approximately 9,000 students in 
the fall of '65. It is projected to take, for the fall of 1966, 
10,285 undergraduate students. At present, we are planning to ad- 
mit 3,100 freshmen; 350 summer-January students; 575 transfers, 
mostly juniors. UM/ Boston is programmed to open with 2,000 students 
in September. 

Dr. Tunis said that, as of April 14, 1966, there had been 
14,728 freshman applications to the Amherst campus; 3,275 to UM/ 
Boston. His office has processed 1,792 transfer applications, for 
a grand total of 19,795 applications. Total inquiries during the 
past year, including catalogue requests, etc., amounted to 250,000 
exc anges of mail. This work load was handled by four full-time 
professionals and nine secretaries. 

With respect to the general admissions policy, Dean Tunis 
stated that it is competitive; also, that the simplest statement of 
the policy is: "We select the best students available." 

The present profile from the applicant pool at the 
Amherst campus is, for men; verbals 510; mathematics 560; at UM/ 
Boston, verbals 470; mathematics 500. The Dean reported that Y/omen 
applicants rate slightly higher in verbals and not quite as high 
in mathematics. 

Dean Tunis concluded that we have a unique prediction 
system in that it is completely mechanized. Scholastic aptitude 
and class rank are the best predictors of academic success. Of 
the two, class rank is the best predictor. 

The meeting was adjourned at 4:45 p.m.

It was further 

VOTED : That the President and Treasurer of the 
University be, and each acting alone 
hereby is, authorized in the name and 
behalf of tne University to sign, file 
and prosecute such application or appli- 
cations with the Department of Health, 
Education and Welfare and with any other 
Department of the Federal Government, 
including any agency authorized by any 
such Department to administer grant pro- 
grams at the state level, for a grant or 
grants under any applicable law for the 
purpose of meeting all or any part of 
the cost of acquiring, constructing, 
equipping and furnisiang facilities for 
the production and transmission, one or 
both, of educational television programs 
by tne University, each such application 
to be in such form and to be accompanied 
by sucn exnibits and additional informa- 
tion as may be required by the governmental 
agency concerned; anu tnat tne execution 
and delivery by such officer of any such 
application shall be conclusive evidence 
tnat tne same was authorized by this vote. 

At the invitation of the Onairman, Dean Keufern presented 
comments on the University's scholarship policy. He reported -uiat 
Trustee Mealey was nopeful that the Board of Trustees would take 
under consideration a suggestion made to tne new Board of Higher 
Education that all scholarship funds for public institutions in the 
Commonwealth be appropriated to the Board of Higner Education, and 
tnen be allocated out at its discretion in one-quarter, one-naif 
or full scnolarsnips . 

Dean Redfern noted that the Board of Higher Education 
already exercises the authority of the old Board of Educational 
Assistance in giving out scnolarsnips. This program involves stu- 
dents going to botn public and private institutions, and 2% of the 
awards must go to students in public institutions. Each year, the 
Legislature has, by law, exempted tne University of Massachusetts 
under the program on grounds that adequate scuolarsnip support was 
directly provided for student assistance ixi tne University's own 
budget. Dean Redfern noted that this was true, and tnat, with the 
help of federal grants, we have been able to provide financial 
assistance to most students needing it. Dean Redfern said it nad 
been pointed out to the Board of Higher Education tnat tne insti- 
tution, if it has control over its own scholarsnip funds, is better 
able to prepare the type of "package arrangement" combining work- 
study grants, MDEA loans and scholarsnip assistance on a basis that 
will best meet the needs of tne students. For this reason, the 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Board of Higher Education recently voted that, until it had a better 
opportunity to study tne matter further, it would request the Budget 
Bureau to restore one cut made in the University financial account. 

Trustee Healey, however, wished the Board of Trustees to 
Know tnat the suggestion relating to administration of tnese funds 
by the Board of Higher Education naa been made, and he hopes that 
the Board of Trustees will develop a position paper on this matter 
for his guiuance, as representative of the Board of Trustees to 
the Board of Higher Education. 

A question was raised whether tnis would involve student 
assistance and scnolarsnip funds now reposing in the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation. The response was tnat only state appro- 
priated funds would be involved. 

President Lederle stated that the Board of Trustees 
should take a position against transferring funds away from the 
University of Massachusetts, an institution which is very close to 
tne student. The President saw no reason for invading what has be- 
come a recognized University amount in support of student aid. He 
observed tnat no outside agency could administer these funds as 
efficiently as could the University. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : Tnat the Board of Trustees record itself in 
opposition to any transfer of scnolarsnip or 
student assistance funds from the University 
to be administered by any outside board or 
agency. 

At tne invitation of the Chairman, Provost Tippo commented 
that faculty recruiting this spring was approximately 80% complete 
in botn Amherst and Boston. It was noted that, of 51 positions 
filled on tne UM/Boston campus, approximately 75% nave Pxi.D. degrees 

The Provost stated that UM/Boston has an AAUP "BB" rating 
with respect to salaries, whereas the Amherst campus has a "CC" 
rating . 

Tne Provost detailed problems being encountered in the 
Mathematics Department at UM/Amherst. Due to the excellence of the 
faculty, outside institutions are "raiding" our personnel. In 
order to counter this, some salary adjustments have been recommended 
to hold the department togetner. Dr. Tippo stated that Michigan 
is paying $23,000 to $25,000 for mathematicians, and that such uni- 
versities as Duke, Louisiana State, Texas and Florida State pay 
higher salaries than the University of Massachusetts.

MINUTES OF SEMI-ANNUAL MEETING OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

June 11, 1966, 10:00 a.m., Dukes Room, Student Union, U of M, Amherst 

PRESENT : Chairman Boyden, President Lederle; 

Trustees Brown, Croce, Crowley, Emerson, 
Gordon, Haigis, Lambson, Lyons, Maginnis, 
McNamara, Plimpton, Rowland, Thompson and 
Troy; Provost Tippo, Chancellor Ryan, 
Treasurer Johnson. 

PRESENT BY 

INVITATION : Dr. Leo Redfern, Dean of Administration; 

Professor William Havard, representing 

the Faculty Senate. 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pre- 
sent and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by the 
Chairman at 10:00 a.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees of May 17, 1966. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, President Lederle 
reported on his appearance, along with other University officials, 
at a hearing before the Senate Ways and Means Committee. Senators 
Burke and Bisbee were present, along with Senator Umana, Chairman of 
the Senate Resolutions Committee. He stated that the committee was 
impressed with the financial problems which the University faces in 
vie?; of recent budget cuts, also that a serious problem was raised bj 
the attachment of riders and provisos to the end of the Appropri- 
ations Act including one to return overhead allowances from federal 
grants to the state general fund. A strong letter of protest has 
been sent by the University, and also by the Board of Higher Edu- 
cation, over the signature of its Chairman, Winthrop Dakin. The 
University now has in hand a check list of various riders and 
provisos added by the Legislature since the University was granted 
fiscal autonomy. 

The President next stated that a special meeting of the 
Board of Trustees will be called for June 30 to consider UM/Boston, 
Medical School and budgets. The University's next budget request is 
to be ready by early September. In the meantime, the President 
requested that the Executive Committee advise on how this request 
should be put together. 

President Lederle invited Provost Tippo to comment. The 
Provost stated that if our overhead money reverts to the Common- 
wealth as presently proposed, the internationally renowned MASSA- 
CHUSETTS REVIEW will go down the drain, along with many excellent 
programs assisted and supported by these funds. There will be a 
mass exodus of faculty.

Chairman Haigis of the Buildings and Grounds Committee 
noted that this group will meet on the 21st of June and that all 
members of the committee, as well as all Trustees, are invited to 
attend the Chenoweth dedication luncheon which starts at 12 o'clock 
i n the North Dining Commons . 

There followed a general discussion of the recent problems 
related to the student humor magazine YAHOO, and some of the 
attendant publicity. Without formal vote, it was the general con- 
sensus among all Trustees present that they supported the President 
sad the Administration in its stand with reference to these matters. 

President Lederle noted that the deletion of the YAHOO 
item from next year's Student Senate budget has been widely mis- 
interpreted as a move related to pressure by the State Senate and 
from other sources. Actually, as the record clearly indicates, 
this matter has been under study for more than a year and YAHOO 
funds were placed in escrow for an extended period of time last 
fall. He re-emphasized that he took the action which he did because 
the Student Senate budget came to his desk at the end of May, just 
as it does every year. 

Chancellor Ryan was asked whether it would be possible to 
have an early meeting with the leadership of the State Legislature 
to discuss certain pending problems. The Chancellor's reply was 
that it would not be possible due to the timing of the Democratic 
state convention. 

Members of the Board of Trustees were reminded that a 
special meeting is scheduled for the 30th of June at the Statler 
Hilton Hotel in Boston. 



The meeting was adjourned/at 11:35 a.m.

Spielman and Kirshenj Professors 
Gluckstern and Shapiro. 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Chairman at 2:00 p.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
the Board of Trustees of June 11, 1966. 

At the suggestion of the Chairman, it was decided to 
transpose the order of the agenda and begin the meeting with item 
11, "Report on Status of the University Medical School." Dean 
Soutter was invited to comment. 

Dr. Soutter reflected the great concern of the accredit- 
ing committee which recently visited the campus on the question of 
whether or not the Legislature and the Governor are seriously back- 
ing the new University of Massachusetts Medical School. Preliminary 
accreditation is required before federal funds for construction can 
be approved. The Dean noted that requests for faculty positions 
had been placed in the budgets of 196$, 1966 and 1967, and that 
they had neither been recommended in the Governor's Budget nor 
approved by the Legislature. The position of Hospital Director 
was inserted this year, the Dean continued, but no faculty posi- 
tions. At the same time removal of the salary ceiling, as provided 
in the so-called "2% bill," has not been effected. This had been 
requested in the fall of 1964 and repeated in 1965. The Dean 
stated that it was vital to get the support of the Legislature and 
the Governor, "for without it we may not only lose the accredita- 
tion of the School, but between 15 and 30 million dollars in 
federal support (matching funds) which are vitally necessary in 
order to construct the School and begin operations in 1970."

Comments 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Trustee Croce emphasized the seriousness of any adverse 
report of the accrediting committee. Current attitudes in the 
legislative and executive branches, he said, are the first acid 
test of sincerity on behalf of the people of the state in support- 
ing higher education and the Medical School. The Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts would certainly lose prestige nationally if these 
moneys and strong evidence of support are not forthcoming. 

After further discussion, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it Y/as unanimously. 

VOTED : That the Chairman seek an appointment for 
the entire Board of Trustees to visit with 
the Governor and the legislative leadership 
in order to stress the critical nature of 
obtaining full support for the University 
of Massachusetts Medical School, so that 
accreditation may not be jeopardized along 
with the possible loss of 15 to 30 million 
dollars in federal funds. 

Dean Soutter stated further that he had been working with 
the various architectural firms involved in the Medical School to 
have plans approved by November. Checking things out with the 
Bureau of Building Construction takes a certain amount of time, and 
to avoid delay in opening of the School by September 1970, it would 
be desirable for the Bureau of Building Construction to assign a man 
full time to the Medical School project, the single largest con- 
struction project in the history of the Commonwealth. 



it was 



After brief discussion, and upon motion made and seconded, 



VOTED : To authorize the administration to request 
of the Bureau of Building Construction the 
assignment of a full-time person to work 
with the Dean of the School and the archi- 
tects so as to assure expediting the 
project in order that the School may open 
as scheduled in September 1970. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, President Lederle 
commented that the University budget is going through the Legisla- 
ture. The budget request has been severely cut and inadequate 
support is being provided to both campuses, Amherst and Boston, if 
the University is to provide high quality education for its students. 
He invited the Treasurer to comment on details. 

Treasurer Johnson described for the Board of Trustees cer- 
tain provisions which had been added to H3650 (budget). Among these 
were limitations placed on future research grants given to the 
University whereby overhead moneys would revert to the Commonwealth; 
also certain language with respect to matching federal grants, which 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

would require the approval of the Commissioner of Administration; 
also language which would have limited the computer programs. The 
Treasurer noted that these limiting provisions had now been re- 
moved after consultation with legislative leaders and officials in 
the Executive branch. The overhead proposal would have made the 
University unique in the country and would have dried up grants and 
driven away faculty. 

Moneys scheduled for the Amherst campus were increased by 
$1,600,000 over the House budget, but are still inadequate, the 
Treasurer said. There is still a deficit of $500,000 in salaries 
for the 88 new teaching positions. No new money has been provided 
for the Boston campus and the House budget did not fully cover the 
additional 2,000 students whom the University will take in 
September. Mr. Johnson noted that the University had filed a 
supplemental budget request, and that he was hoping for an appoint- 
ment this coming week with the Bureau of Budget to explain the 
critical problems raised by cuts in University requests. 

In response to a query, the Treasurer noted that the Uni- 
versity returned 4 million dollars in fees this year to the general 
fund of the Commonwealth. Hence, the appropriation is properly 
subject to a deduct of 4- million dollars representing revenue re- 
turned to the Commonwealth. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : That until such time as state appropria- 
tions for the fiscal year July 1, 1966 
to June 30, 1967 are finalized so as to 
permit the adoption by the Trustees of 
an operating budget for the fiscal year 
1967, all previously authorized personnel 
and other commitments as required shall 
be continued, and that the President is 
authorized to make such additional ex- 
penditures within available funds as may 
be necessary for the support of the educa- 
tional programs, provided that the Presi- 
dent shall, as soon as is practicable, 
present an Operating Budget to the Trustees. 

The President continued his comments by observing that 
the University has had broad editorial support with respect to the 
2% bill (H324-) . He noted that the visiting team for preliminary 
accreditation of the Medical School had taken cognizance of this, 
and that they were most anxious that this legislation pass and that 
it apply to the rest of the University as well so as to guarantee 
a quality institution across the board. The President noted that 
in a study of the nation as a whole only five state universities 
were found to have any salary ceiling whatsoever. He added that 
the University "does not intend to pay fantastic salaries," as the 
Board of Trustees would not approve of this. The program will be 
operated within authorized funds.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Boyden announced the appointment of two Trustees 
to Committees of the Board. Trustee Crowley was appointed to the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds, and Government and University 
Relations; Trustee Lambson was appointed to the Committee on Faculty 
and Educational Policy. 

The report of the Executive Committee was presented by 
Trustee Healey. The first item was a health fee of $10.00 per 
semester at the University of Massachusetts/Boston. At the invita- 
tion of the Chairman, Chancellor Ryan stated that the purpose of the 
fee was to provide outpatient diagnosis, treatment and general 
health services as required for students at the University of 
Massachusetts/Boston. 

After further brief discussion and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To establish a Student Health Fee of ten 

dollars ($10.00) per semester (with pro- rated 
fees for terms of less than one semester) 
for University of Massachusetts/Boston stu- 
dents and to authorize the establishment of 
the Student Health Services Trust Fund - 
Boston as a depository for said fees and to 
further authorize the Treasurer with the 
concurrence of the Chancellor and the Presi- 
dent to take appropriate action as they may 
deem necessary from time to time to imple- 
ment this action for the establishment of a 
Student Health Service for students attend- 
ing the Boston campus of the University. 

Secondly, Trustee Healey stated that he had felt for 
some time the need for a new master plan for the University of 
Massachusetts. There is the problem of "chipping away at autonomy" 
in the Legislature, and the Board undoubtedly needs a new look at 
major plans for the University including proposed enrollments and 
programs of study on all campuses, along with a projected costing 
out of these programs on the basis of five to ten years into the 
future. It might then be possible to answer definitely questions 
raised in the legislative and executive branches, "and settle once 
and for all the question of whether or not the Board of Trustees is 
responsible for running the affairs of the University." 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : That the Executive Committee of the Board 
of Trustees be designated to work with the 
University administration to develop a 
master plan for the University, and to 
make an initial report in September, 1966.

Chairman Pumphret presented the report of the Finance 
Committee. He stated that the Committee had met on June 29 with 
representatives of the University's investment counselors, 
Standish, Ayer & Wood, Inc. to review the University's investment 
portfolio. A few minor suggestions for change in the stock and 
bond holdings were recommended which v/ould result in approximately 
a 1% increase in income. After brief discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and unanimously

It was also 

VOTED ; That there be and hereby is delegated to 
the Treasurer of the University of Massa- 
chusetts, Kenneth W. -Johnson, for the time 
b£ing in office the power and authority, 
to be exercised only with the concurrence 
of the Finance Committee of the Trustees, 
such concurrence to be expressed by a 
writing signed by the members of the 
Finance Committee at the time being in 
office or by a vote passed at a regularly 
called and held meeting of the Finance 
Committee, to invest and reinvest the

or of any special endowment or trust fund 
or funds and that it be and hereby is de- 
clared to be the judgment of the Trustees 
that the delegation of authority hereby 
made is necessary or desirable. 

Chairman Pumphret indicated that the Trust Fund Operating 
Budgets had been carefully reviewed and checked and that the Finance 
Committee was recommending their acceptance. It was moved, 
seconded and unanimously

and for such purposes as he may deem to be 
in the interest of the University. 

Chairman Haigis reported for the Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds. He commented on the very well attended and impressive 
dedication exercise for Chenoweth Laboratory which was held on the 
campus on June 21, 1966. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED: To accept the Food Science and Technology

General 
Comments on 
New Courses 
and Programs 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Haigis also reported on developments with 
respect to the proposed new University College, indicating that 
September of 1970 now seems to be a more feasible date for its 
opening. The Campus Center project (originally the Continuing 
Education) now being handled by the University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority has now been speeded up, and, according to archi- 
tect Marcel Breuer, may be available by the fall of 1968. 

Chairman Haigis also called the attention of the Board to 
the 19-page article in Architectural Record for May, 1966, report- 
ing on "Distinguished Architecture for a State University, " cover- 
ing the University's forward progress in building construction with 
some of the most notable and distinguished architects in the world. 
In this area, this makes us number one in the United States," he 
concluded. 

Chairman Troy reported on the background of the Committee 
on Faculty and Educational Policy meeting of June 22, at which time 
the Dean of the Graduate School and other deans were invited in for 
consultation. He noted that the Committee had received a large 
package of prepared materials on new programs, courses and degrees 
around June 11, and that this led to a feeling that some new per- 
spective should be gained on where these programs were going in the 
future, together with attendant costs. 

The Chairman noted that his Committee conveyed their 
awareness to the administrators that graduate education is ex- 
pensive; also, that building a good school takes a long time, and 
that we have a long way to ge "because we started so late . " The 
Committee had raised the question whether or not there should be a 
program of priorities for excellence in the central College of Arts 
and Sciences. It is here that the ground for excellence in a great 
university really rests. The President made a response to this 
question, indicating that such a system of priorities was un- 
necessary, because a program of this kind would neither help nor 
hinder graduate development and might very possibly delay the addi- 
tion of Ph.D. disciplines which a large public university should be 
offering. 

The Provost pointed out that those initiating new programs 
and courses were most likely to be very alert faculty members and 
administrators, and they would be tempted to leave if opportunities 
for growth in their discipline areas were denied over time. 

One Committee member had raised the question of whether 
the proposed doctorate program in Forestry and Wildlife Management 
was really necessary when all of the basic work is taken in 
Chemistry and Biology. It was pointed out, however, that the 
dissertation in this field must be handled by a trained specialist; 
also, that the Department is in continual contact with the industry 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

A question was raised also as to how the rapid growth of 
graduate offerings would affect the undergraduate quality of in- 
struction. The Committee received assurance that the 15 to 1 ratio 
would be held; also that students were receiving competent faculty 
instruction in the first two crucial years of training. In summary, 
the Committee has taken a hard look at the plethora of new programs 
and courses. Basically, the Committee has faith in the faculty and 
the administration. On the other hand, there are periods when the 
Committee feels an obligation to ask for a full perspective on 
where the entire program of graduate and undergraduate offerings 
are going in the future. At this point, Dean Moore of the Graduate 
School was invited to comment. 

Dean Moore told the Board that graduate education and its 
attendant problems has been one of the most widely studied areas in 
American higher education over the past few years. This is due to 
two factors: 

1. The need for persons with advanced degrees, 
particularly at the doctorate level, far 
exceeds anything that anyone had ever 
anticipated in years past. 

2. The demand by students for graduate educa- 
tion far exceeds anything that graduate 
deans themselves had ever anticipated. 

Dean Moore continued that an advisory committee to the 
President issued from the White House in I960, a report "urging the 
importance for the country of a substantial increase of universi- 
ties where first-rate research and graduate study will move forward 
together." In general, the universities did not respond. 

Two years later, a second report issued by a White House 
science advisory committee, headed by Jerome Wiesner of M.I.T. re- 
iterated this need urging "vigorous national effort to double the 
number of doctorates awarded by 1970." 

On June 5, 1962, a report issued by the University of 
Massachusetts Long-Range Planning Committee indicated that Massa- 
chusetts would require 10,000 doctoral level persons in the next 
ten years. At that time, we were turning out approximately one- 
half this number. 

Dean Moore indicated that in February, 1964, he wrote to 
President Lederle that all present projections for graduate enroll- 
ment appeared to be conservative. This was due to three causes: 

1. The unprecedented nation-wide demand for 
graduate-level education. 

2. The population growth, twice as vigorous 
as had been projected. 

3. In no state, was the demand for graduate- 
level education as intensive or as universal 
as in Massachusetts.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

When all three of these forces combine, Dean Moore said, 
there can only he an unprecendented growth in graduate programs at 
the University of Massachusetts. 

Dean Moore continued that the United States may soon pay 
a price of 150 unemployed persons for every Ph.D. that it fails to 
educate. 

The link between a doctorate and dollars is very clear in 
the new science-oriented industry, he said. 

According to an article by Fred Hechinger in the New York 
Times . as late as I960 there were only 300,000 graduate students in 
the United States; by 1970 there will be 800,000. Pressure will 
build, he said, in the near future to the point where many, many 
qualified applicants will have to be rejected. 

Dean Moore then proceeded to show a series of charts 
tracing the growth of the University of Massachusetts Graduate Schoo 
enrollment. 

In 1964, we had approximately 8,000 inquiries for ad- 
mission; in 1965, 12,000; and so far, this year, 16,000. The Dean 
anticipates 20,000 inquiries for admission by next fall. 

The 16,000 inquiries to date resulted in 6,200 application;; 
and 3,500 acceptances, with an anticipated final admissions quota 
of 2,600. 

Dean Moore next presented a chart tracing graduate school 
enrollment over the past decade: in 1966, 220 students; in 1961 
about 800; and over 2,600 next fall. 

Dean Moore next presented a comparison with other state 
institutions in terms of graduate enrollment and program: 
Minnesota and Wisconsin have approximately 100 doctoral programs; 
Colorado and Washington each have approximately 50 doctoral programs 
Massachusetts and Connecticut each have approximately 30 doctoral 
programs . 

For our size institution, Dean Moore said, we are just 
barely where we need to be; and if we expect to grow to the size of 
Colorado and Washington in the next five years or so, then we need 
to move up to 50 programs. To become a really first-rate state 
university, we need to move up to approximately 100 doctoral pro- 
grams some time in the next decade . He added' that he felt that the 
minimum optimum number of students enrolled in graduate programs 
should be approximately 25% of the total enrollment. 

Dean Moore next responded to certain questions posed to 
him by the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy as follows: 



2849 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

How much effort is going into the graduate program ? 

In the 1950s, we produced 109 Ph.Ds; in 
the first five years of the 1960s, 133. There- 
fore, we are doubling our output. 

At what cost ? 

We are increasing fields in which we offer 
the Ph.Ds by about 5 or 6 per year. The Dean 
hopes to continue this, for it is a level which 
the University can absorb comfortably. He in- 
dicated that he would feel better if we were 
moving ahead at the rate of 7 to 8 new Ph.D. 
programs per year. 

We are turning away qualified applicants for 
the first time this year, and we are moving toward 
a more selective admissions policy, raising from 
a 2.5 to 2.75 eligibility cut-off point at the 
undergraduate level. 

What -proportion of University resources should be 
devoted to the graduate program ? 

Dean Moore indicated that a significant 
portion needs to be devoted to the graduate pro- 
gram. At the present time, he estimates approxi- 
mately 30% of University resources and 20% of our 
students; a more realistic proportion would be 
25% of students enrolled, and 4.0% of University 
resources. 

With respect to the division between humani- 
ties and sciences at the graduate level, the split 
is about 50-50. 

Should any program be approved, or should selective 
criteria be developed ? 

The Dean indicated that only 50% of present 
proposals emerging from departments reach the 
Trustees. There is much lower level screening. 

What priorities do we have ? 

The following Graduate School priorities are 
in effect: 



First, we are now trying to develop a doctorate 
in every area where a Master's program exists. 
It is difficult to get good students if the 
Master's level is the terminal degree. 

Secondly, interdisciplinary doctorates such as 
statistics, marine biology and genetics are 
being encouraged.

Thirdly, astronomy, oceanography and aerospace 
science are being investigated. The third 
category is largely undeveloped at this time. 

How fast is the Graduate School growing ? 

Tenfold in the past decade. 

Are we maintaining quality ? 

We are maintaining quality and one criterion 
is how much we attract federal support. "As you 
know," Dean Moore related, "we had recently a 
federal grant of 3.5 million dollars toward the 
Graduate Research Center, one of the largest ever 
made. In federal fellowships, the University of 
Massachusetts received more awards in the past 
year than any other public institution in New 
England." 

How important is a Graduate School ? 

A university is distinguished from a college 
by the presence of the graduate school. To have 
a first-rate university, you must have a first- 
rate graduate school. Also, Dean Moore continued, 
you cannot have a first-rate medical school with- 
out a first-rate graduate school. He stressed also 
that you cannot have a first-rate undergraduate 
program without a first-rate graduate school. "The 
kind of teachers we want are those working on the 
research frontiers of their disciplines." 

What is the Graduate School's single greatest problem ? 

Dean Moore stated that the single greatest 
problem is the University Library. There should 
be approximately twice as many volumes as we now 
have. 

A question was raised by the Trustees concerning how many 
female students are enrolled in the Graduate School and the answer 
was approximately one-third. Interest was also expressed in the im- 
pact of the Vietnam conflict on enrollment. 

Vice-Chairman Healey stated that it might not be wise to 
play "the numbers game" simply for its own sake, and that it might 
be better to add double the number of students in existing programs, 
rather than add programs in areas which have little relation to the 
national interest, etc. Trustee Lyons commented that he had been 
much persuaded by Dean Moore's excellent presentation. He added 
that the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy should properly 
continue to question the development and proliferation of Ph.D. 
programs laterally, to determine thatj in each case, substantial 
scholarship and need is imbedded within each program.

Chairman Troy next proceeded with the specific programs 
requiring approval by the Board of Trustees. 

Provost Tippo was invited to comment on a petition from 
Professor Gluckstern, Head of the Department of Physics, requesting 
that the University join with 34- other universities in the Univer- 
sity Research Associates, Inc., a managerial organization which has 
offered itself to the Atomic Energy Commission for the purpose of 
jointly sponsoring a high energy accelerator. The present assess- 
ment per university is $5,000 per year. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : To authorize the University of Massachusetts 

to apply for membership in University Research 
Associates, Inc. for the purpose of participating 
in the program of and sponsoring the establish- 
ment of a high energy accelerator. 

Professor Shapiro, head of the Department of Botany, re- 
ported to the Board that he had been in negotiation for some time 
with a very distinguished faculty person who is a member of the 
National Academy of Sciences. He requested permission to continue 
recruitment proceedings with this individual at the present maximum 
salary limit. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : To encourage Professor Shapiro to continue 
earnest negotiations with a distinguished 
scientist and faculty person with a view to 
recruiting him as an outstanding addition 
to the Amherst faculty. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a Ph.D. de- 
gree program in the School of Business Ad- 
ministration for the fall of 1967, as out- 
lined in Document 66-087 which document is 
attached to and made a part of these minutes. 

It was further 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a Ph.D. pro- 
gram in Polymer Science and Engineering, as 
outlined in Document 66-087.

yesterday with students and members of the administration with 
respect to various items in a report of "The Administrative 
Committee on Student Life, 1966," dated April 29, 1966, dealing 
with a number of problems related to the University residence halls, 
including the curfew on women students. This document, 66-092, is 
attached to and made a part of these minutes. 

Chairman Lyons indicated that the general view was that 
freshman women should continue under the curfew. 

President Lederle commented that the implementation of de- 
tails in this report may have to be deferred. He corrected the im- 
pression that there would be no rules in effect if recommendations 
of the report were adopted. The houses will determine their own 
policies, he said, and the doors will be locked at 12:00 p.m. 
Guidelines will be in effect. 

Trustee Thompson stated that the summer Collegian had re- 
ported that parietals would be permitted. Chairman Lyons responded 
that no such program is proposed, nor was it recommended in the 
original report. 

Trustee Healey stated that the relationship of fraterni- 
ties and sororities to all of these proposals should be looked at 
carefully. 

######### 

Chancellor Ryan was invited to give a brief report on the 
status of UM/Boston. He indicated that the General Court bill with 
reference to the purchase of the UM/Boston building has come out of 
the Senate Ways and Means Committee. Passage is expected next week. 
He indicated that the search continues for a new and permanent campus; 
location. 

President Lederle presented the personnel actions, and 
after brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, it was

The Treasurer stated that the sum of $16,2-45,838 had been 
recommended by the Governor for the University of Massachusetts. 
This was 27.9% of the total recommendations for capital outlay. In 
addition, $2,700,000 had been recommended for the UM/Boston build- 
ing. This brings the total for this year to $18,945,838. Of this 
amount, $4,339,653 will consist of federal funds. We are in ex- 
cellent shape as far as federal matching funds are concerned, the 
Treasurer stated. 

The Governor's recommendations followed the Trustees 
priorities very closely. These are: 

1. Plans for the Library - $600,000 

2. Plans for Addition to the Health Services - $58,000 

3. The Graduate Research Center - $10,527,838 

4. Additional Plans for the Fine Arts Center $400,000 

5. Life Sciences Building plans - $420,000 

6. Utilities and further expansion of the Power Plant - 

$1,600,000 

7. Equipment - $500,000 

8. Road, sidewalks, etc. - $500,000 

9. Land purchases, Amherst - $300,000 

10. Renovation of older buildings - $500,000 

11. Water Resources Laboratory and Cranberry Station - 

$165,000 

12. Controlled Atmosphere Research Station for Belchertown- 

$275,000 

13. Planning money for the permanent Boston site - $200,00(|) 

14. Books for the University Medical School - $200,000 

The Treasurer noted that we had received money last 
December for planning for the Medical School and that this would be 
sufficient to carry us through the current year.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Chairman at 2:00 p.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees of June 30, 1966. 

President Lederle commented that most of his remarks 
would be incorporated in a report by Chancellor Ryan on proposals 
for the 1968 operating budget for UM/Boston. 

Vice Chairman Healey stated that the Executive Committee 
meeting this morning was devoted mainly to broad policy questions 
relating to the 1968 budget requests. There had been a full ex- 
change of philosophy and policy with respect to this budget, and 
the views of the committee would be reflected in the budget which 
has already been forwarded to members of the Board. He had no 
further comment. 

The report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy was presented by Chairman Troy. Minutes of this meeting 
having been circulated to the Board of Trustees, Trustee Troy made 
brief reference to the 104 courses proposed for the curriculum at

been discussed at a prior meeting, but there was not time to vote. 
They are now returned for consideration. He added that new graduate 
program proposals from this time forward must have a projected 
dollar cost attached, along with the usual course description and 
justification. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : That a Ph.D. degree in Industrial Engineering 
be approved and established in the School of 
Engineering, as detailed in Document 67-004, 
which document is herewith attached to and 
made a part of these minutes. 

It was also 

VOTED : That the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Nutrition 
and Foods, as detailed in Document 67-005 be 
approved and established. This document is 
herewith attached to and made a part of these 
minutes . 

It was noted that a proposed M.S. degree in Veterinary 
Hygiene had been discussed in detail by the committee, and it was 
agreed that this consideration of this matter be deferred until 
members of the department have an opportunity to provide further 
justification. 

Chancellor Ryan reported to the Board that an inaugural 
convocation was proposed for the UM/Boston campus on October 1, 1966. 
Further details would be supplied at a later date. All Trustees 
are invited to attend. 

Chairman Lyons stated that the Student Activities Com- 
mittee had met on August 2 and engaged for several hours in a 
discussion on the report dated April 29, 1966 from the Administrative 
Committee on Student Life. 

Summarizing, he indicated that the proposals, as revised, 
would provide for curfews for freshman women only (12 midnight from 
ifonday to Thursday; 1:00 a.m. on weekends); also that dormitories 
would be locked at 12 midnight, and desk service provided on a 
volunteer basis by students to permit anyone out late to enter the 
residence hall. 

So-called "parietals" (visiting of students in rooms 
occupied by members of the opposite sex) will not be permitted. 

There will be visiting in lounges at pre-determined hours, 
as heretofore, on vote of the majority of a residence hall member- 
ship. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

There will be a regular nightly inspection and patrol of 
buildings, locked at 12 midnight, by members of a new security 
patrol. 

Trustee Lyons said that the report indicated that frater- 
nities are not a great problem at the University. They are declin- 
ing in percentage of enrollment (16$ of the student body versus 33% 
five years ago). There is no discrimination. In 1957, the Board 
of Trustees gave fraternities three years to eliminate discrimina- 
tory clauses in their charters and constitutions, and this has been 
complied with. Fraternities as a whole are involved in greater 
consumption of alcohol and manifest lower grade averages than the 
campus at large. 

The fraternity financial system is handled by a corpora- 
tion manager. Three new fraternity buildings nave been constructed 
recently, and a privately financed fraternity-sorority park is now 
proposed, located on the Nelson property across from the University 
on East Pleasant Street. Fraternities and sororities may purchase 
membership in the corporation at $1,000 each.* Tnere is absolutely 
no University financial involvement in the project. 

The Chairman stated that his report required no motion or 
vote. It is simply being brought to the attention of the Trustees 
for information purposes. Implementation will be handled by the 
administration . 

In the absence of Chairman Haigis, Trustee Emerson pre- 
sented the report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. 

He stated that it was desirable, in terms of student 
morale, and for the purpose of rendering identification easier, to 
name the Southwest Complex buildings at this time. 

It is proposed that the nigh-rise buildings collectively 
be known as the Presidential Towers. Individual towers would be 
named for Presidents of the United States who went to the White 
House from Massachusetts; also for George Washington. It is pro- 
posed to name the four low-rise residence halls after distinguished, 
deceased faculty members. 

After brief discussion, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That the five high-rise buildings in the 
Southwest Residence Hall Complex be called 
the Presidential Towers and that the 
separate buildings be named for four Presi- 
dents who went to the White House from Massa- 
chusetts, as follows: John Adams, John Quincy 
Adams, Calvin Coolidge and John F. Kennedy; 
the fifth high-rise residence hall to be 
named for George Washington. 

*The cost of a lot in the Fraternity Park is estimated 
at $29,000 each.

Treasurer Johnson stated that negotiations for certain 
pieces of land adjacent to the site of the Medical School in 
Worcester are still in progress, and that the situation is incon- 
clusive. The Trustees will he kept fully informed, and a full re- 
port made at a later aate. 

Tne Treasurer next described a request suhmitted by 
Attorny Sanford Keedy on behalf of a client who desired to have 
access to a parcel of land over University property. 

After brief discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : To decline the request of Attorny Sanford 
Keedy on behalf of his client to provide 
access over University property to a leased 
plot of land adjacent to the Wysoeki farm 
on North East Street. 

There followed brief discussion of a letter sent by City 
of Boston Mayor Collins to Chancellor Ryan indicating that the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts/Boston should not he located in a resi- 
dential area within the city limits. 

It was pointed out that the Board of Trustees has not had 
an opportunity to study fully a report suhmitted by Sasaki, Dawson 
and DeMay, Inc. entitled "Site Evaluation of Highland Park-Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts/Boston." It was agreed that the Board 
should he given this opportunity before taking any action with 
respect to a permanent campus location for Ul^Boston. 

After further brief discussion and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To hold a special meeting of the Board of 
Trustees in September, prior to the regular 
meeting scheduled on September 12, for the 
purpose of discussing the Sasaki, Dawson 
and DeMay, Inc. report on site evaluation, 
together with other pertinent information 
bearing on a future, permanent site far the 
Hfl/Boston campus. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Lederle commented that the report on the 
operating budget for 1967 as circulated to the Board of Trustees 
does not necessarily represent all the money that may eventually 
accrue. The Governor's supplemental budget recommends, for example, 
the amount of $651,000 for the University of Massachusetts/Amherst. 
There are also funds for uM/Boston and for the Medical School. 
Nevertheless, this is a "hold the line" budget. It had been planned 
in carrying out the intent of the Willis-Harrington Commission 
Report to expand our continuing education program, strengthen the 
graduate program and provide a learning resources center. These 
have had to be abandoned. As a whole, the budget does not reflect 
adequate support. 

The President continued that, as far as the Medical School 
is concerned, the recommendations of the Governor may be adequate 
for a part of the year, because it would not be possible in any case 
to recruit all of the faculty Immediately. Medical School library 
funds are included in the capital outlay appropriation. Accredita- 
tion, at this point, no longer seems to be a problem. 



serious . 



At the same time, the situation at uM/Boston is very 
Chancellor Ryan was invited to comment. 



2859 



The Chancellor re-emphasized that UM/Boston has serious 
problems. There is insufficient supporting funds for professional 
and non-professional staff, aside from the faculty. These include 
areas such as counselling, financial aid, etc. 

Among the other drawbacks, laboratories obtained in 
capital outlay appropriations last year are now ready to function, 
but $135,000 requested in supplies and special equipment has not 
been forthcoming, so it is not possible to plan a 50$ increase in 
biological laboratory stations. 

The library now stands at 38,000 volumes and money is on 
hand for 5,000 additional volumes. "But a campus of the University 
of California system," for example, "wouldn't open its doors with- 
out 100,000 volumes on hand in a package," the Chancellor said. 
The solution rests with the Legislature and with the House Ways and 
Means Committee. It is important that individual Trustee support 
be brought to bear with members of the Legislature. The program at 
UM/Boston is now "at the end of the road." The Chancellor noted 
that the supplementary budget is what is under discussion. 

Trustee Troy queried why the Legislature always appears 
to cut library funds, since this is the heart and core of any uni- 
versity. "Year after year," he noted, "we have the same problem." 

Chancellor Ryan reported on House 3477 (UM/Boston Building 
purchase bill). He stated that this bill originated in the House 
and was amended in the Senate to include an "in lieu of taxes" pay- 
ment to the City of Boston. Apparently, the bill with such a pro- 
vision is unable to get a two- thirds majority approval in the House.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars of federal funds are avail- 
able immediately if tne building is purchased. There are other 
sound policy reasons for owning it. The Trustees were urged to 
approach the members of the Legislature and enlist the concurrence 
of the Senate. Additionally, the uity of Boston needs to know that 
they will continue to receive "in lieu of taxes" payment for tne 
land on which the building is situated; also, that it is not the 
intention of tne Board of Trustees or the University that the Park 
Square area become the permanent site for the campus of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts/Boston. 

The Chancellor observed that the size of faculty office 
and student study space continues to be a major problem. Had 
renovation money been available, Phase II of renovations would 
have proceeded. Now, all available faculty space has been used up, 
and no further space is available for 65 new faculty members 
arriving in September. Consultants to the University are investi- 
gating space in the vicinity of 100 Arlington Street to locate 
additional faculty on a temporary, rental basis. 

Trustee Lyons commented that the Commonwealth needs to 
develop a clear and firm policy on the question of in lieu of 
taxes payments. Boston needs to be compensated somehow, and the 
question will come up over and over again until some policy is 
determined which will be satisfactory to all parties concerned. 
It was noted that the option to purchase the WS/Bostaa building 
will continue for three years.

Treasurer Johnson noted that he had been happy to report 
at the last meeting that the Governor had requested $16,245,838 in 
capital outlay for the University of Massachusetts for the coming 
year. This recommendation is now in the House Committee on Ways 
and Means. There has been no opportunity for any member of the 
administration to appear before the committee to defend or support 
this request. 

There are, the Treasurer continued, some changes being 
considered by the House Ways and Means Committee which would 
reduce the Governor's recommendation in a number of respects. 

Serious consideration is given to deleting:

Lederle commented that a postponement of plans for the Fine Arts

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having

the Chairman at 2:00 p.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees of August 11, 1966. 

President Lederle commented that in 1965 collective 
bargaining was approved by the General Court for employees. The 
University is now moving to indicate personnel designated to be 
eligible. There will be a hearing on September 19. Following this 
there will presumably be a collective bargaining election. A 
petition has been received from MSEA that they be the agent. We 
now have monthly grievance hearings, but will establish a more 
standard, formal pattern. Upon query from Trustee Thompson and 
comment from Vice Chairman Healey, Treasurer Johnson explained that 
MSEA had, in effect, served notice that they wish to be recognized 
as the exclusive bargaining agent group. Based on a prior verbal 
agreement, they submitted a set of points they wish to have 
reviewed . 

The report of the Committee on Government and University 
Relations was presented by Chairman Emerson. The results of the 
1966 session of the Legislature were reviewed. House 34-77 - the 
UM/Boston Building Purchase Bill, minus the "lieu of tax payment" 
proviso, was passed, authorizing purchase and renovation of the 
UM/Boston building. Second - the capital outlay appropriation 
(H.324) was in the amount of $10 million state funds, plus $4.5 
million matching federal funds. This will provide for the first

phase of construction of the Graduate Research Center and planning 
funds for the Library. Major items omitted were planning funds 
for the Fine Arts Teaching Center and the Infirmary addition. 

The supplemental budget, as finally enacted, went through 
as recommended by the Governor: $651,000 for Amherst; $64,810 for 
UM/Boston; $93,000 for Worcester. 

A salary increase of $% for all state employees was 
enacted effective December, 1966 (in addition to 10$ for non- 
professionals granted earlier). Funds were also provided for a 5% 
merit increment for professional staff to be awarded as appropriate 
as of February 1, 1967. 

A Salary Relief Bill (H.324-) was passed. It provides for 
the Medical School Dean and Medical Department Heads to be exempt 
from the present salary ceiling; also the President, Provost, 
Chancellor and a number of positions including academic deans and 
other members of the professional teaching staff, up to 1% of the 
total staff, exclusive of the position titles named above. This 
provides for a total of about 20 exemptions. 

Trustee Thompson posed the question whether this total 
included administrators, and whether the Board could, for example, 
increase the salary of the President. The answer was negative to 
the former and affirmative to the latter. 

Dean Soutter commented that, while this was a great step 
forward, (it will enable the securing of Medical School departmental 
heads) it still does not place us in a competitive position with 
Medical Schools having no restrictions on the hiring of their 
faculty members. 

Trustee Thompson said he would like the Executive Com- 
mittee to take up the matter of the President's salary at its next 
meeting; then refer it to the Board. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED i To recommend to the Executive Committee of 
the Board of Trustees that the salary of the 
President of the University be reviewed by 
the Executive Committee and that an appro- 
priate recommendation be made to the Board 
of Trustees. 

Trustee Crowley queried whether the Executive Committee 
also assumed responsibility for determining where the 1% salary 
relief would apply. It was Trustee Lyon's view that recommenda- 
tions should come from the Faculty and Educational Policy Committee. 
President Lederle felt that some committee should consider higher 
level salaries even before the administration is required to act. 
Trustee Healey stated that, while the University did not get all it 
felt was needed, the results were gratifying. He indicated strong 
legislative and executive support. He commended and congratulated 
the committee, chaired by Mr. Emerson, for the work done "on the 



2865 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

hill" . The work done by Dean Redf ern, Joseph Cass and other is 
also worthy of commendation by the Board. 

The report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy was presented by Chairman Troy, who stated that the last 
meeting of the committee primarily centered on departmental re- 
organization. Reasons for change were discussed with each depart- 
ment head. He explained that language courses in Russian and 
German have always been combined. Now it seems advisable to 
separate these disciplines due to the inevitable continued growth 
of enrollment, particularly in graduate studies. It was recommended 
that separate departments of Germanic Languages and Literature sand 
a department of Slavic Languages and Literature- be established. 
These departments will be administered by Professor Posin and Pro- 
fessor Paulsen respectively, each of whom expects to expand into 
other languages in the related fields. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the department of German-Russian be 
divided into a Department of Germanic 
Languages and Literature and a Department 
of Slavic Languages and Literatures, 

The committee has also considered the advantage of 
establishing a new department in Biochemistry. The nature of the 
offerings are considered sufficiently unique to justify separate 
department status. The major universities so classify it. Trustee 
Healey questioned whether this would entail increase in staff. 
Trustee Troy expressed the view that, as undergraduate and graduate 
interest grew, this department inevitably would grow at which time 
the staff would need to expand. He pointed out that departmental 
status exists de factor at the present time. After brief discussion 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To establish a department of Biochemistry 
within the College of Arts and Sciences. 

The committee stated the University for years has offered 
courses in Astronomy. It is the proposal of Professor Gluckstern, 
head of the Physics Department, that we now consolidate to a Depart- 
ment of Physics and Astronomy. We should move in the direction of 
astrophysics and radio astronomy. This is the current trend, rather 
than the older emphasis on celestial mechanics. Professor Gluckstern 
has been able to attract Professor Irvine from Harvard, a dis- 
tinguished astronomer, who will head up the work in this department. 
No exceptional expense will be involved in this proposal, since we

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Department of Physics be renamed the 
Department of Physics and Astronomy. 

The committee next presented a recommendation that the 
program in Industrial Engineering be granted departmental status, 
as proposed by Messrs. Picha and Trueswell. It is felt that this 
area would develop more efficiently if separated from other phases 
of the engineering school.

Discussion ensued and Trustee Thompson posed the follow- 
ing questions: (1) Why does change become necessary now? (2) Are 
there enough students requiring this specialized division? Dean 
Picha stated that approximately 50 undergraduates and 18 graduates 
are interested in this field. He added that six persons (five of 
them with Ph.D's) are in Industrial Engineering instruction. The 
department is oriented toward mathematics and has been a department 
in all but name. Trustee Haigis mentioned that Industrial Engineer 
ing actually was moving out of time study and more and more into 
research. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the program in Industrial Engineering 
be granted departmental status within the 
School of Engineering. 

Chairman Troy presented data indicating the need for an 
M.S. degree in Veterinary Hygiene. Professor Fox, head of the De- 
partment of Veterinary and Animal Science, and Research Professor 
Martin Sevoian commented that there is considerable activity in 
research and pathology; also, the program could be of service to 
other disciplines. If approved, the M.S. degree would serve persons 
wishing to go on for a doctoral degree elsewhere in animal science. 

In response to Trustee Thompson's question, it was brouglrt 
out that there would be no relation to the Medical School in this 
field; also, that all the researchers have doctorates in other 
disciplines (DVM) . The program is mainly intended for graduate 
students in the department. 

Trustee Thompson commented with satisfaction that 
Governor Volpe had given great recognition to the University's 
growing world-wide reputation during a recent breakfast held in 
honor of a visiting student group from Africa (Malawi) . He 
particularly mentioned eminence in agriculture. On motion duly 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That an M.S. degree program in Veterinary 
Hygiene be established in the Department 
of Veterinary and Animal Science. 

Chairman Troy mentioned that Professor Reid head of the 
Department of Speech, had presented to the committee the credentials 
of an outstanding scholar in this field. The University hopes to 
recruit this person in the future. He alerted the Board that a 
doctorate in Speech would be in the offing as the caliber of the 
staff improves. 

Dean Hunsberger reported on a recent Psychology Department 
evaluation, which was undertaken because of the impending resigna- 
tion of Professor Neet as head of the department. Results indicate 
that this department rates among the top 50% nationally of all 
psychology departments offering a doctorate. Chairman Troy ex- 
pressed satisfaction with the evaluation procedure and recommended 
that similar studies should be made in other departments of the 
University.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dean Picha was invited to comment on the Engineering 
School in general. He responded that the undergraduate teaching 
program was strong . He hopes to infuse more research orientation. 
With the aid of increased development grants from industry, govern- 
ment and foundations, this would raise the School's stature. It 
is possible to develop a first-rate graduate program in the School 
of Engineering in approximately five years. Dean Picha stressed 
the need for a program permitting payment of moving costs for newly 
recruited faculty. This is a generally accepted procedure elsewhere 
Dean Picha feels that absence of this fringe benefit is a deterrent 
in the acquisition of personnel. 

Chairman Haigis of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
indicated that there would be seven votes, encompassing activity at 
Worcester, Boston and Amherst. He stated that progress in Worcester 
has been most impressive and that preliminary sketches (not plans) 
of the Hospital and Medical School would be shown in order to secure 
Board approval. This is a prerequisite for government approval and 
issuance of matching funds due in November, 1966. 

Mr. Nelson Aldrich of Campbell, Aldrich and Nulty pre- 
sented the site use sketches. He stated that the facility is placed 
in proximity to the location recommended in the Sasaki report. The 
main hospital entrance is at the intersection of Plantation Street - 
on Route 9. 

Mr. Aldrich stated that a major feature actually is 
accommodation of the automobile. The garage is integrated into 
design of the Hospital and Medical Science Building. It will 
accommodate 1,000 cars. He feels it is vital to bring vehicles into 
the heart of the structure. There will be a service road at the 
east (lower level). Expansion possibilities were shown indicating 
that facilities could be doubled. Basic plans call for a 400-bed 
hospital, but this could expand horizontally and accommodate 800 
beds. The library and auditorium may expand horizontally, but the 
Medical School may expand vertically as well. 

Slides were shown illustrating the various elevations and 
floor plans. It was stated that the general elements of the whole 
project now are set; specific elements of units within the general 
areas still remain flexible. 

In answer to a question by Trustee Croce, it was made 
clear that, in the event of expansion, (i.e. building a new wing on 
the hospital), connections to the Medical School floors would 
remain the same. 

Sample hospital rooms showed a capacity for ten persons 
to surround a bed, for teaching purposes. These rooms are larger 
than those found in the usual hospital. Trustee Croce questioned 
why there were only two-bed rooms, and no provision also for four- 
bed rooms. Dean Soutter explained that this matter had been 
thoroughly explored with hospital consultants. The trend now is 
toward one-bed rooms. However, the two-bed room is practical In

case of need, one bed could be moved out, creating a one-bed room 
temporarily for purposes of instruction. This would allow several 
students to gather around the remaining patient. 

Chairman Haigis commended the cooperation extended by the 
Bureau of Building Construction. Having Mr. Gedman assigned to the 
project has helped greatly. Considering the magnitude of the pro- 
gram, we are now in good shape and should be able to meet the 
deadlines for opening of the school. It was then 

VOTED i That preliminary sketches for the Uni- 
versity Medical School complex in 
Worcester, as presented by the firms of 
Ellerbe; Campbell, Aldrich & Nulty, Inc., 
and Ritchie Associates, be approved. 

Discussion next moved to the engagement of Mr. James 
Hamilton as hospital consultant. Most hospitals under construction 

em P loy consultants who have been administrators in hospitals to 
work along with the architects, thus insuring practical design. 
The consultants also advise on equipment and staff. The end result 
is a saving both in money and in construction design. Mr. Haigis 
noted that Mr. Hamilton has already saved the project more than his 
proposed fee. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To appoint Mr. James Hamilton as Hospital 
Consultant to the University of Massa- 
chusetts on the basis of a five year eon- 
tract at an annual fee of $10,000, with 
the stipulation that Mr. Hamilton will 
guarantee 50 days of consultant service 
per annum. 

Discussion then moved to the matter of southern access 
road in Worcester. After brief explanatory comments by Chairman 
Haigis, motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To authorize Dean Lamar Soutter of the 
University Medical School to enter 
negotiations with the Youth Detention 
Board of Worcester, Massachusetts, with 
a view to securing as much southern 
frontage as possible on Route 9 at the 
Medical School in Worcester for the 
purpose of planning a southern access 
road to the site. 

A request was considered by the corporation proposing to 
building a Fraternity-Sorority Park on the property south of the 
University's Tillson Farm. This called for a tie-in with the Uni- 
versity sewer system, in order to eliminate the necessity of a 
pumping station. Director of Physical Plant Hugill recommends that 
this petition be denied, in view of the University's own future 
needs .

After discussion, and upon motion made and seconded, it 
was unanimously 

VOTED : To decline to grant a petition of the 

Fraternity-Sorority Park, Inc. for sewer 
rights in University lines adjacent to 
Eastman Lane. 

There was next presented a proposal by the Fraternity- 
Sorority Park, Inc. for an easement over the University property, 
on the Tillson Farm, to enable the construction of a water line to 
the proposed Fraternity-Sorority Park area. 

After discussion and clarification, it appeared that no 
cost oripQsnveniegfie to the University would be involved; this 
arrangement might, in fact, prove beneficial. It was thereupon 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To provide an easement over University 

property for the construction of a water 
line connecting the proposed Fraternity- 
Sorority Park area with existing Uni- 
versity water line facilities. 

Pursuant to paragraphs 14 and 22 of the UM/Boston Building

Chancellor Ryan then discussed the faculty space shortage 
in Boston, stating that it is critical. Various avenues had been 
explored and it has been resolved to rent space. This suggestion 
was presented to the Trustees and the inquiry arose as to how this 
could be accommodated in the budget. Funds left over (line 16) as 
a result of legislative authority to purchase building can be used. 
Discussion ensued and it was moved, seconded and

He outlined briefly the highlights of the opening convo- 
cation at Amherst attended by a record breaking group of 5,000 in an 
outdoor ceremony; as well as receptions for the new faculty and for 
freshmen, attended by a total of 3,100 in the new Southwest Dining 
Commons #2, and stated the University is now accredited in all five 
areas in Engineering. 



Chairman Healey presented the report of the Executive 
Committee. He stated that the committee has held two meetings to 
discuss and screen a list of names proposed for honorary degrees at 
Commencement, 1967. The list will be held in confidence as usual 
until late spring. The Board of Trustees is expected to act on the 
final selection at its meeting in November. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Treasurer Johnson submitted to the meeting the matter of 
transfer of funds from 1350-02-13 (Supplies) of $50,000 to 
1350-02-15. This was necessitated because of greater enrollment 
than had been anticipated at the University of Massachusetts/Boston 
and the need for educational equipment such as microscopes, etc. 
After motion was made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve a transfer from 1350-02-13 (Supplies) 
of $50,000 to 1350-02-15 (Equipment) to cover 
emergency need for teaching equipment for 
unanticipated larger enrollments in certain 
science courses at the University of Massa- 
chusetts/Boston . 

Treasurer Johnson next introduced to the meeting the 
matter of additional space for UM/Boston and the need for approval 
to lease 10,000 square feet on the ninth floor of the Liberty 
Mutual Building. He outlined the terms of the agreement, commented 
on the beneficial aspects of the terms and space, stated that 
Attorney Austin Broadhurst had checked the official lease agreement 
and found it in order. It was thereupon moved, seconded and 

V OTED : That in accordance with approval received on 

October 19, 1966, from the State Superintendent 
of Buildings, the Treasurer of the University, 
Kenneth W. Johnson, is authorized to enter into 
a tenant-at-will agreement with the Prudential 
Insurance Company of America, in a form as pre- 
sented to the meeting, dated October 20, 1966, 
on file in the Treasurer's Office, for approxi- 
mately 10,000 square feet of space on the 
ninth floor of the luLberty Mutual Building 
located at 30 St. James Avenue, Boston, for a 
monthly rental to July 1, 1967, of $3,250.00, 
with terms, options, and renewals as contained 
therein. 

Chairman Healey stated that, in the opinion of the 
Executive Committee, the terms of the lease represent a bargain. 
Chancellor Ryan wished to be recorded as acknowledging the great 
help extended by Trustee Emerson in this matter. 

Treasurer Johnson stated the total cash variance for the 
fiscal year ending June 30, 1966 in the Treasurer's Office tellers' 
transactions was $64.95 (shortage). Chairman Healey commented that 
the Executive Committee thought this was a remarkably good perform- 
ance and it was 

VOTED: That the cash variances of the receiving tellers 
in the Treasurer's Office in the amount of a 
shortage of $64.95 for the year ended June 30, 
1966, be written off to Trust Fund Interest 
contingency account.

An agreement between the University and the Amherst- 
Pelham Regional District School Committee was presented by Treasurer 
Johnson. This agreement provides educational TV linkage. After 
brief discussion as to the advantages to be gained by such an agree- 
ment, degree of consent necessary from parents of televised students 
etc., it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: That President John W. Lederle be authorized 
to enter into a cooperative agreement with 
the Amherst-Pelham Regional District School 
Committee for the purposes of establishing 
an educational television connection between 
the Amherst Regional High School and the 
University of Massachusetts School of Edu- 
cation in the form of agreement on file in 
the Treasurer's Office and that Treasurer 
Kenneth W. Johnson be authorized to take 
any and all actions necessary to implement 
said agreement. 

Commissioner Kiernan stated that Chapter 71, Section 37, 
became involved in the foregoing and referred to Secretary 
McCartney, as a member of the Board of the Massachusetts Educational 
TV Committee for corroboration. After further clarification of 
this matter, and Commissioner Frechette's query as to legal aspects 
as related to televised participants, it was agreed that the ad- 
ministration will explore implications of Trustee Frechette's sug- 
gestion that all aspects of obtaining releases from students and 
teachers ought to be investigated prior to implementing the coopera- 
tive program. 

The report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy was called for. Chairman Troy read the Chancellor's 
recommendations that a Dean of Faculties be appointed for Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts/Boston. Professor Paul Gagnon would be 
appointed temporarily. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; That the position of Dean of Faculties be 

created at the University of Massachusetts/ 
Boston and that a nationwide search be made 
to secure a suitable person for that position. 

It was also 

VOTED : That Professor Paul Gagnon be appointed 

Acting Dean of Faculties at the University 
of Massachusetts/Boston. 

Chairman Troy stated that the committee had discussed 
the proposed University of Massachusetts/Boston Faculty Senate 
Constitution and that suggestions for certain revisions had been 
relayed back to the faculty. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Chairman Troy stated the members of this Board had now had 
an opportunity to read the detailed analysis (67-018) prepared re- 
lating to the University's proposed library reorganization made 
necessary by expansion and an accelerated acquisition program and 
the resultant need for the position of Director of Libraries for 
purposes of coordination. He stated the vote also had been cir- 
culated and recommended the vote be passed. 

VOTED ; That the library of the University be and 
hereby is entirely reorganized as the Uni- 
versity Library System and that, in 
furtherance of such reorganization, 

(i) there be and hereby is created 
the position and title of 
Director of University Libraries; 

(ii) the descriptive job specification 
of said position be as set forth 
in the specification presented to 
this meeting as document 67-019, 
and 

(iii) the duties and functions of the 
position of University Librarian 
be as set forth in the specifi- 
cation presented to this meeting 
as document 67-020, which docu- 
ment is hereby adopted as the 
descriptive job specification 
for said position, all prior 
specifications being hereby 
amended accordingly. 

It was also 

VOTED : To appoint Professor David Clay acting 
Director of University Libaries, pend- 
ing a national search for a director. 

The Trustees then considered the proposal for a University 
sponsored summer program in Madrid, Spain, and it was 

VOTED : That the plan for a summer program in 

Madrid, Spain be adopted as detailed in 
Document 67-014, which document is 
attached hereto and made a part of these 
minutes . 

In response to Vice-Chairman Healey's question, Trustee 
Troy stated that the programs at Oxford, England and Bologna, Italy 
would be continued as held last year.

with the academic year 1967-68, the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts will treat as in- 
state students the children of faculty mem- 
bers of those New England State Universities 
that afford reciprocal arrangements. 

President Lederle's memorandum of September 28, 1966 on 
the subject of Five College Cooperation and establishment of a 
Center for Cooperative Development in Education having been cir- 
culated to the members, and similar action being taken by the 
listed colleges, motion was made, seconded and then 

VOTED : To adopt the principle of a Center for

Committee Chairman Troy invited Treasurer Johnson to 
summarize the changes brought about by legislative action, affecting 
salary schedules, with particular reference to the 6% increase 
granted all full-time personnel effective November 27, 1966. 
Treasurer Johnson stated that a vote is required to apply this 6% 
increase uniformly in accordance with University policy. It was 
then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : In conformity with the provisions of 

section L4 of chapter seventy-five of the 
General Laws, as amended, and the pro- 
visions of chapter 635 of the Acts of 
nineteen hundred sixty-six and the

other acts applicable thereto, each 
person in the professional staff in a 
classified position paid in whole or in 
part from state funds under subsidiary 
accounts designated 01 and 02 on November 
twenty-seven nineteen hundred sixty-six 
shall receive an increase in his respective 
weekly salary rate equal to six percent; 
provided, that no rate shall exceed the 
maximum rate in the general schedule in 
said chapter 635 and that the provisions 
of chapter 635 of the Acts of nineteen 
hundred sixty-six shall be applied in like 
manner to all professional staff paid from 
other state funds provided however that in 
the case of those paid from institute, grant, 
or contract funds such payment shall be 
subject to the recommendation of the principal 
investigator or director of the project and 
his certification of the availability of funds 
to cover the cost of the increase.

Chairman of the Faculty and Education Committee Troy con- 
tinued his report, commenting that his committee had been holding a 
series of meetings with Dean Spielman of the College of Agriculture 
in order to clarify the status of the Control Services. It is 
planned to bring in a group of distinguished consultants whose 
expertise will assist in evaluation. It is also planned later to 
do this in other University departments. One of Dean Spielman* s 
concerns is that the Control Services should have a separate budget, 
clearly reflecting the fact that they are not a part of the in- 
structional costs of the University. Trustee McWamara agreed. The 
matter will be explored further. 

Chairman Troy reported further to the Trustees on a meet- 
ing of his committee with UM/Boston faculty members on October 20. 
Due to the vital nature and complexities of the UM/Boston problems, 
it was decided that the attention of an entire meeting should be 
devoted to discussion. The matter was, therefore, put forward to 
the November meeting of the Trustees. 

Adjustment of the 1968 budget was requested by Treasurer 
Johnson. Word from the Budget Bureau indicates there will be a 53rd 
pay week in the fiscal year 1968.

Accordingly, motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To adjust the 1968 budget requests in 
accordance with instructions received 
from the State Budget Bureau to include 
the salary figures for the 53rd week of 
fiscal year 1968 and to further adjust 
salary figures to properly reflect 
certain stationary salary increases by 
programs . 

The Treasurer commented that the Board had authorized 
three officers to sign documents and expense papers for the Uni- 
versity; the volume of business has increased to the extent where 
additional officers should be approved. It was, therefore, moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : That the following officers of the University 
of Massachusetts are each authorized, in their 
capacities as officers, to sign and execute 
singly and without any co-signature any and 
all documents and instruments relating to 
expenditures of funds, requests for funds, 
vouchers, warrants, schedules, invoices, 
certificates and also all documents and 
instruments of every nature and kind as

Treasurer Johnson then submitted the next item on the

and seconded, it was unanimously

with the provisions of Section 32A of 
Chapter 75 of the General Laws, the

The question of representation of the non-professional 
employees, primarily here in Amherst was presented to the meeting. 
A petition was filed by the local chapter of the Massachusetts State 
Employees Association requesting an election to determine the 
official employee bargaining unit. Tentative regulations have been 
issued by the State Division of Personnel, but they are in the 
process of evaluation, therefore, the Executive Committee feels 
this matter should have more attention by persons who have ex- 
perience in the field as a preliminary to any further action. 
Recommendation was made that a special ad hoc committee be appointed 
to work with Administration officials in developing definitive 
recommendations to the Board. Accordingly, upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Chairman to appoint an 
ad hoc committee to work with the ad- 
ministrative officials in developing 
definitive recommendations for the Board 
of Trustees relating to designating an 
employee unit (or units). 

The Chair thereupon designated Trustees Thompson, Pumphre-t 
and Healey to work with representatives of the employee groups in- 
volved, and with the Division of Personnel. 

The report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds was 
given by Chairman Haigis, the last meeting having been held on 
October 17 with Mayor Collins of the City of Boston. The committee 
expects to have some recommendations to make to the full Board at 
the November meeting. Chairman Haigis indicated that the Mayor 
discouraged the use of the Highland Park area for the UM/Boston

permanent site, since this would mean a loss of revenue to the city 
and dislocation of great numbers of people. The Mayor indicated 
that forty- two percent of Boston is now tax free property and a 
permanent UM/Boston campus would raise this percentage to 



Vice-Chairman Healey stated that UM/Boston problems have 
now reached the critical stage. The Board of Trustees must push 
for their alleviation. These matters will be fully explored at the 
meeting of the Board on November 21, 1966. 

The meeting was adjourned at 12:03 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Acting Chairman at 2:10 p.m. 

The minutes of the last meeting having been circulated 
previously .< upon motion duly made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
the Board of Trustees of October 22, 1966. 

The President commented on a letter received by the 
Trustees relative to the Library situation, stating it seemed ad- 
visable to refer it to a committee. It was thereupon moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To refer to the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy certain correspondence 
received in reference to the Library. 

The President drew the attention of the meeting to the 
scheduled Founding Convocation at University of Massachusetts at 
Boston, December 10, 1966. Chancellor Rj'-an addressed the Trustees, 
outlining the Founding Day program and inviting the Trustees to 
attend. Approximately 5,000 persons are expected for the event, to 
be held in the War Memorial Auditorium. 

Dean Soutter of the University Medical School addressed 
the meeting, discussing the progress in plans, including prospects 
for receiving Federal Funds. He stated that the Medical School 
has received preliminary accreditation from the AMA. and the AAMC. 
He noted that costs are advancing beyond original estimates in 
similar projects in other states. It, therefore, seems likely we 
will experience much the same sort of pattern. Dean Soutter is 
hopeful we will know by January. Faculty recruitment is proceeding 
well despite the difficulty in securing the high calibre of people 
we require.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

There followed a discussion on availability of federal 
funds and the percentage of matching funds we could anticipate re- 
ceiving. This could range as high as 66/5 for education and 50% 
for research facilities. However, no school has received as much 
as the statutes permit. Dean Soutter passed out to the meeting a 
summary showing the current situation on faculty salaries at medi- 
cal schools. 

Chairman of the Faculty and Educational Policy Committee 
Troy reported on a meeting held with faculty members and the 
Chancellor of UM/Boston. 

1. The UM/Boston Library problem is acute. The 
supply of books is seriously inadequate; staff- 
ing is inadequate. A fine library is necessary 
to recruit and hold a first class faculty as 
well as to educate students. The library budget 
request was cut to $50,000. This has discouraged 
the faculty. They now wonder if they have support 
of the Commonwealth to do the kind of job they 
wish to do. 

2. Facilities and space in Boston are grossly in- 
adequate for students as well as faculty. This 
becomes a matter of safety as well as con- 
venience. Another temporary building is needed 
as soon as possible. 

3. Research support is needed for the faculty. Ade- 
quate research space is important for scientists. 
At present, they are inadequately provided with 
all of these things. 

Chairman of the Buildings and Grounds Committee Haigis 
presented Phase II Renovations for UM/Boston. After discussion, 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the preliminary plans for Phase 
II Renovations for UM/Boston as submitted 
by Drummey, Rosane and Anderson. 

Chairman Haigis next reviewed a meeting with Mayor 
Collins of the City of Boston regarding a permanent location for 
the Boston campus. After further comment, motion was made and 
seconded and, it was then 

VOTED : That the University remain committed to 
the City of Boston and provide support 
to explore all possibilities for locating 
a permanent campus in this location.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Acting Chairman Crowley called upon Chancellor Ryan to 
summarize the present problems of UM/Boston. The Chancellor 
assured the meeting that every effort will be made to help solve 
space shortages and other problems. The key, he said, is finding 
some solution which will take care of the problem for the next 
4-6 years until the permanent site is a reality. The current acute 
actual need is for one and a half times the space v/e now have for 
the academic program. 

Acting Chairman of the Executive Committee Emerson sub- 
mitted to the meeting a recommended transfer of funds. After 
motion was made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the transfers between sub- 
sidiary accounts, 1967 Appropriation, 
as detailed herewith: 

TRANSFERS BETWEEN SUBSIDIARY ACCOUNTS 
1967 APPROPRIATION 

1350-01-Amherst 

From: 01 - Salaries, permanent positions $1,190,000 

To: 02 - Salaries, temporary positions 590,000 

03 - Services, non-employees 600,000 

The reason that these funds are surplus to payroll 
requirements in this 01 account for permanent positions 
is that qualified persons could not be recruited on a 
permanent basis. Therefore, the essential work is 
being covered by persons employed on a temporary and 
overtime basis (02) or a part-time or intermittent em- 
ployment under 03. The 03 transfer also covers the ad- 
justment for the expanded summer session of $110,000.00 
and provision for increased student employment. 



From: 09 - Farm and Grounds 
To: 05 - Clothing 



$ 3,200

Mr. Emerson referred the meeting to the confidential 
listings supplied each member present of candidates for honorary 
degrees at Commencement, 1967, as submitted by the Executive 
Committee. After consideration, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the final list of nominees for 
honorary degrees at Commencement, 1967 
submitted by the Executive Committee (Docu- 
ment 67-031) which document is marked 
CONFIDENTIAL and placed on file in the 
Office of the President. 

Trustee Emerson advised the Board that the University 
Master Plan preliminary draft is nearing completion and a meeting 
would be scheduled on this subject. 

Establishment of a Commencement Fee was discussed. 
Schedules were supplied to the members of the Board showing compare, 
tive fees at other colleges and universities. President Lederle 
detailed some of the costs associated with Commencement each year. 
Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To establish the policy of placing the 
expense of commencement exercises and 
events on a self-supporting basis through 
the establishment of a Commencement Fee 
of ten dollars ($10.00) to be assessed 
all students in the last semester or terra 
prior to receiving a degree and to 
authorize the establishment of a trust 
fund entitled "Commencement Fund" as a 
depository for said fees and to further 
authorize the Treasurer to receive and 
disburse the income derived from said 
fee. 

The subject of Boarding Hall Rates was discussed (Docu- 
ment 67-029) . A survey of board rates of selected universities 
was supplied to the Board. Treasurer Johnson spoke on behalf of 
this proposal, describing the need for an increase in rate. This 
is associated with the inflation spiral. He commented on the 
favorable climate for this advance evidenced by editorial support 
in the student newspaper.

A student who withdraws from the University 
after paying a semester meal charge shall be 
entitled to a pro-rata refund on such charge, 
less administrative costs in such amount as

It was

foregoing vote be and hereby is recommended 
to University of Massachusetts Building

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



1. Student purchasing semester meal tickets 
shall be allocated to the Seventh Project 
for purposes of determining the revenues 
therefrom in such numbers as may be re- 
quired pursuant to the Management and 
Services Agreement dated as of April 1, 
1966 pertaining to said Seventh Project. 

Trustee Thompson then submitted the "Report of the Ad Hoc 
Committee on Matter of the Employee Unit for Collective Bargaining 
Purposes." He informed the Board of a November 1 meeting his 
committee had with Mr. Leonard A. Kelley, Director of Personnel and 
Standardization, as well as a November 3 meeting with employee 
representatives. Trustee Thompson stated it was the conclusion of 
his committee, within the confines of recognized law of all 50 
states that the appropriate employee unit for collective bargaining 
purposes under Chapter 637 of the Acts of 196/4 for the Amherst 
campus of the University should include all full-time non-pro- 
fessional employees whose primary place of employment is on or with- 
in 15 miles of the Amherst campus, excluding employees whose duties 
are managerial or confidential in nature. In deciding whether an 
employee is "managerial" the customary tests of authority to hire 
and fire, or effectively recommend the same, should be applied. 

The committee further feels that the matter of specific 
implementation of the provisions of Chapter 637 of the Acts of 1964- 
should be delegated to the administrative officials of the Univer- 
sity. Therefore, it recommends that the President of the Univer- 
sity be designated as the "agency head" for the purposes of carry- 
ing out the provisions of Chapter 637 of the Acts of 1964 and the 
Rules and Regulations of the Director of Personnel and Standardiza- 
tion issued pursuant thereto. We further recommend that a close 
liaison be established with the Executive Committee of the Board 
of Trustees in order to keep the Board fully informed as to 
matters affecting employee relations at the University. After ex- 
change of views and further comment, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To accept the report of the Ad Hoc 
Committee on the Matter of the Em- 
ployee Unit for Collective Bargain- 
ing Purposes as presented (Document 
67-032) which document is attached 
to and made a part of these minutes. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the President of the University 

be designated as the "agency head" for 
the purposes of carrying out the pro- 
visions of Chapter 637 of the Acts of 
1964 and the Rules and Regulations of 
the Director of Personnel and Standardiza- 
tion issued pursuant thereto.

The meeting then returned to Report of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy. Chairman Troy submitted the Pro- 
posed Amendments to the Constitution of the Faculty Senate (Docu- 
ment 57-030) . A motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED ; To approve the proposed amendments to the 
Constitution of the Faculty .Senate of the 
University of Massachusetts, Amherst 
(Document 67-030), which document is 
attached to and made a part of these 
i rutes. 

Chairman Troy made a brief report on the Control Ser- 
vices. He stated that this service was neither an academic 
activity nor a research activity. These functions are handled on 
the Amherst Campus because of state law. It troubles the committee 
because the Control Services budget is not separated from the 
general budget in such a way as to render clear and distinct its 
non-academic character. This leads to confusion when persons un- 
familiar with the structure of a university attempt to derive the 
cost of education per student by dividing the enrollment into the 
total budget. Chairman Troy stated that actually the control seg- 
ment is a consumer service. He recommended to the Board of 
Trustees that the Control Services budget be line-itemed. It was 
accordingly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Control Services budget be line- 
itemed to make its distinctly non-educa- 
tional character apparent, so that these 
funds will not be improperly charged 
against the student head count as a cost 
of instruction. 

Trustee Lambson stated that the Farm Bureau at its next 
meeting intends to consider this matter and subsequently may have 
some contribution to make toward solution of the problem. 

In accord with the recommendation of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy, the appointment of a Chairman, 
Department of Surgery for the Medical School was considered. Dean 
Lamar Soutter's candidate was discussed. It was proposed to retain 
him as consultant, and thereupon motion was made, seconded, and it 
was 

VOTED : To appoint a Consultant in the Department 
of Surgery with the view that, by opening 
date of the Medical School, he will be 
available as full Professor and Chairman 
of that Department. 

Chairman Haigis submitted the renort of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds. He stated that the Worcester situation re- 
mains stable. Authorization is needed, however, to raze certain 
structures on the land. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and

There was discussion with reference to the taking by 
eminent domain of property at the terminus of Old North Hadley Road. 

In accordance with Chapter 541, Acts of 1961, Item 8262-12 
and subsequent acts, authorizing the Trustees of the University to 
acquire certain lands including lands with buildings thereon, for 
the development of the University, by purchase or eminent domain 
under Chapter 79 of the General Laws and the authority granted 
therein, independent appraisals of the value of the land having been 
made by qualified disinterested appraisers, and filed with Kenneth 
W. Johnson, Treasurer, on motion duly made and seconded, it was 
unanimously 

VOTED : Tp purchase or take by eminent domain in 
fee, that property whose owners of record 
are shown to be John S. Kelley, Jr., and

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pre- 
sent and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
Chairman Boyden at 2:00 p.m. 

The Chairman stated that the minutes of the previous 
meeting had been circulated. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, 
and it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees held on November 21, 1966. 

Chairman Boyden then called for comments by the President. 
President Lederle stated that the founding convocation of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at Boston on Saturday, December 10, 1966, 
had brought together many leading citizens of the state, many 
distinguished members of the Amherst community and student repre- 
sentatives including the President of the student body. An im- 
pressive speech by Chancellor Ryan contributed to the occasion. 

The President announced the receipt of an award in the 
amount of $5,000 from the Standard Oil Company of Indiana, whose 
President, Mr. Robert Gunness, is an alumnus of the University 
(Class of 1932). Three thousand dollars of this sum is to be used 
for three distinguished teacher awards. The balance is to be used 
by the President to broaden the University program in areas of need.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Provost Tippo circulated copies of published works of 
various members of the faculty, including two published by the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts Press and four journals edited by faculty 
members . 

Trustee Haigis submitted the report of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds. Mr. Austin Broadhurst of Ely, Bartlett, 
Brown and Proctor was asked to submit a report on behalf of the 
Building Authority. Mr. Broadhurst noted that the Campus Center 
Project had been reported to the Board previously. Under considera- 
tion now is whether it would be appropriate to provide for parking 
space adjacent to this facility. 

Mr. Broadhurst outlined the nature of the remaining pro- 
jects in the Southwest complex, to house 822 students. He stated 
that the costs will approximate the Orchard Hill costs, a project 
which housed 1300 students. It was indicated that this was a 
definite trend. Mr. Broadhurst said this matter will come to the 
Board for final commitment in January, but it was considered 
advisable to make the report now because of the rise in cost. 

Mr. Broadhurst described the need for a proposed change 
in legislation permitting the University Building Authority to 
arrange utility tie-ins with construction and enter into certain 
types of projects jointly with the Commonwealth. 

This amendment would facilitate the University College 
project and other projects undertaken by the Building Authority by 
making it possible, when requested and authorized by the Trustees, 
for the state to pay for incidental academic space or utilities 
built into residence halls or other self- liquidating projects. 
This might be done by the state turning over appropriations as 
authorized to the Authority to pay the cost of construction or the 
space might be leased by the state at an appropriate rental. There 
would be options available to the state and the Trustees, and could 
be used only where the academic space or utilities were clearly in- 
cidental to the project. It could not be used to construct an en- 
tire academic building. In this way, student room rents or fees 
would not be used to pay for academic space. 

Chairman Haigis of the Buildings and Grounds Committee 
called for a report from Dean Soutter on the current status of the 
Medical School and the application for federal funds. The Dean 
stated the application is being submitted to HEW in its preliminary 
form for review and comment. It will soon be presented more 
formally. Dean Soutter introduced Mr. Nelson of Campbell, Aldrich 
and Nulty to display and comment upon preliminary medical school 
plans. 

The plans were viewed, discussed and questions were 
asked. It was stated that the projections shown did not include 
the auditorium, the parking garage or the hospital. Dean Soutter 
described the purpose, use and numbers of persons the medical 
science building is expected to accommodate. Costs of the proposed 



2895 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

structure were compared with other similar schools. The document 
entitled, "A Comparison of Costs Before and After Architects' 
Revisions" was distributed to the meeting and Mr. Aldrieh augmented 
it with related description. 

Chairman Haigis re-emphasized that the subject matter 
under discussion was the Medical Science Building and not the 
hospital. It was thereupon moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That there be and hereby is authorized the 

preparation and filing of an application for 
Federal assistance for the construction of 
medical science facilities for the medical 
school on the basis of the plans and cost 
estimates dated December 2, 1966 presented 
to this meeting and that Lamar Soutter, 
Dean of the Medical School, be and he hereby 
is authorized to take all such action includ- 
ing but not limited to execution of such 
application as he may deem necessary in con- 
nection with the preparation, filing and 
prosecution of such application. 

Architect Aldrieh said, upon his return from Washington, 
it is expected that a detailed description of the planned Medical 
School will be produced and distributed to the Trustees . 

Chairman Haigis of the Buildings and Grounds Committee 
informed the Board that his committee is not unmindful of the 
request for certain renovations in the Memorial Building. He ex- 
pects to consider these as soon as possible. The delay has been 
occasioned by the precedence accorded to the Medical School. 

The report of the Committee on Student Activities was 
submitted by Chairman Lyons. Minutes of the meeting of that com- 
mittee, held December 3, 1966, having been circulated, the Chairman 
briefed the content. He stated the committee met with the student 
group on (1) publications and (2) dormitory life under the changed 
rules . 

With reference to publications, the student and faculty 
senates set up a joint commission of 12 persons, including students. 
to review and make the recommendations. Their report has been 
circulated. It recommends a committee on publications, to assist 
and oversee publications; to promote the appointment of staffs more 
representative of the student body as a whole; more effective 
recruitment and training of staffs; and a more definite and useful 
relation of faculty advisers to the editorial staffs of publications 
Chairman Lyons commended the group on preparing an able report, 
representing the relationships and responsibilities between the 
various campus media and the University.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The proposals of the Commission have been accepted. 
Discussions over the past months between faculty and students have 
created an improved climate and attitude. The Collegian has begun 
a program of staff training. The administration and student boards 
have accepted a more serious role for the faculty adviser. 

To consider dormitory life, under changed curfew regula- 
tions, the administration had assembled a representative group of 
deans, senators, house masters, chaplains, student organization 
leaders, and the new security supervisor. All contributed views 
and opinions. The net result was general agreement that the new 
situation was working out well; that delinquencies were no more 
numerous than heretofore. They felt pleased at the way house groups 
had organized and were accepting responsibility. The security setup 
was appreciated by the students but considerable feeling was ex- 
pressed that the regular campus police force is too small. It was 
pointed out, however, that generally the police were fully and 
quickly accessible when needed. It was also noted that town police 
were on call as required. 

There was considerable student complaint about administra- 
tive enforcement of illegal parking penalties. The student house 
counsellors expressed concern at the extent of thefts in the dormi- 
tories. The failure of students to feel any responsibility to ex- 
posed thieves or establish a strong social climate against the 
practice was noted. 

As a summary: the assembled students and administrators 
generally felt that the new curfew policy and self-government in 
the residence halls has been a good move and is working out. The 
Chaplain to Catholic students, Monsignor David Power, dissented 
from this view and felt that the University had made a serious 
mistake . 

Motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To accept the report of the Student Activities 
Committee as presented. 

The report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy was presented by Chairman Troy. He advised the Board of the 
accreditation of the Engineering School, stating four departments 
were accredited for a 6-year period, and one department was 
accredited for a 4-year period. Chairman Troy outlined the 
innovations in this discipline, including a new Head of the 
Mechanical Engineering Department. 

Chairman Troy reported that a listing of persons request- 
ing sabbatical leaves had been submitted to the committee. This 
has been carefully reviewed. In accord with the recommendation of 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy, it was moved, 
seconded and 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To approve the list of faculty members 

recommended for sabbatical leaves for 1967- 
68 as amended and attached herewith 
(Document 67-035). 

As part of the effort to recruit famous and distinguished 
persons to the faculty of the University, Chairman Troy briefly 
outlined the desirability of naming a chair in mathematics the 
GEORGE DAVID BIRKHOFF PROFESSORSHIP IN MATHEMATICS. This post 
would be offered to an outstanding mathematician. Motion was there- 
upon made aid seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To establish the GEORGE DAVID BIRKHOFF 
PROFESSORSHIP IN MATHEMATICS. 

The Board was advised that the first court hearing has 
been held on the Library case. The action may now be amended to 
include the Board of Trustees. At this point Attorney Austin 
Broadhurst addressed the meeting, describing and explaining the 
situation and possible procedures. 

A letter from Mr. Morrison Haviland, Associate Librarian 
of the Goodell Library, and a reply on behalf of the Board of 
Trustees, were read to the Board. 

The report on the Freiburg Program, Chairman Troy stated, 
indicates it is progressing most satisfactorily, although it is too 
early to obtain serious assessment. 

The faculty responsible for this program enthusiastically 
recommend expansion from 35 to 50 students. The Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy, however, feels the increased costs 
which would be involved combined with the lack of actual elapsed 
time to evaluate the program make it advisable to postpone decision 
on this and renew the program for the next year on the current 
basis. It is hoped that Associate Alumni support will continue for 
scholarship aid. It was speculated also that certain foundations 
might be interested in this program. The committee discussed the 
student participation fee. It was decided to increase the fee from 
$20.00 to $50.00 to be paid by each student. Chairman Troy des- 
cribed the program as one which the committee supports with 
enthusiasm. Motion was made and seconded, and it was then 

VOTED : To continue the Atlantic Studies Center 
Program in 1967-68 at the same financial 
level as for 1966-67, with the provision 
that the Student Participation Fee be in- 
creased to $50.00. 

Trustees Gordon and Maginnis expressed enthusiastic 
support for the program. Trustee Maginnis visited Freiburg in the 
fall. He stated that the Atlantic Council has interest in this type 
of project and endorsed our participation especially if it is possi- 
ble to secure financial help from sources heretofore closed to us.

New courses and programs, as proposed by the School of 
Business Administration, were discussed, including revision of the 
undergraduate curriculum in marketing. Chairman Troy reviewed the 
discussion as held with Dean Kirshen, Professor Wolf and Dr. Mellen, 
The entire program is in process of revision; it will entail no 
additional expenses beyond those that go with normal expansion. 
After consideration and in accord with the recommendation of the 
committee, motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED ; That the new programs and courses as 

described in Document 67-039 be approved. 
This document is attached to and made a 
part of these minutes. 

Chairman Troy summarized a meeting held with Dean 
Niederpruem and members of her staff in the School of Home Economics 
with reference to an earlier request to formalize approval of 
establishing departments in the School of Home Economics. The 
various advantages of such a change were outlined. There will be 
no increase in expense. In fact, the School now operates in this 
way. 

In accord with the recommendation of the committee, a 
motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That the following areas be established as 
departments with department heads in the 
School of Home Economics: 
Nutrition and Food 
Home Economics Education 
Human Development 
Management and Family Economics

Chancellor Ryan addressed the Board, thanking them for 
their participation in the IM at Boston convocation. The matter of 
space and site for the Boston school was next discussed. The 
Chancellor briefly described his visit with Mr. Wood of the Housing 
and Urban Development Agency in Washington. He felt the visit was 
constructive and informative. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chancellor Ryan stated that the space requirements for 
the University of Massachusetts at Boston for the next academic year 
have been thoroughly studied and analyzed. A document setting forth 
space requirements for a four-year program has been supplied to 
each Trustee by mail. Assuming it is the intention of the Trustees 
to proceed with securing space, Chancellor Ryan said he should like 
to move ahead with an engineering analysis of space available, ask- 
ing Sasaki to explore the mechanics of other sites available. 

Discussion followed with consideration being given to the 
Long-Range Planning Committee carrying the matter to Washington; 
the possibility of federal aid as compared to state support; the 
possibility of assigning one person to this matter of correlating 
the efforts. There was general agreement on the need for action. 

Chairman Boyden, commenting on the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston Founding Convocation, praised the interest and 
attitude of the student body. He stated that the event was very 
well organized and offered a wonderful opportunity for Chancellor 
Ryan to express himself, in view of the unavoidable delay in arrival 
of the main speaker due to inclement weather conditions. 

The Trustees concurred in this and a motion was made and 
seconded, and it was 

RESOLVED To instruct the Secretary to record in the 
minutes the appreciation of the Board of 
Trustees for the fine cooperation of the 
following University of Massachusetts at 
Boston groups: the Faculty Committee, 
student body and particularly the Student 
Chorus for their outstanding contribution 
to the Founding Day Convocation Ceremonies 
of the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston, with a special note of commendation 
to the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst Concert Band for its excellent 
performance . 

President Lederle circulated Personnel Actions (Documents

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the Chairman convened the meeting 
at 2:00 p.m. 

Chairman Boyden asked Secretary McCartney to introduce 
the visitors to the Board. They were Miss Knapp of Boston, Miss 
Campbell of Belmont, representing the League of Women Voters; mem- 
bers of the press, and Mr. Edgar Perry, representing the Board of 
Directors of the Associate Alumni. 

The minutes of the previous meeting having been made 
available to the Trustees, and there being no recommendation for 
changes, it was moved, seconded and 

V OTE D: That the minutes of the meeting of the Board 
of Trustees of December 13, 1966 be approved. 

The meeting next considered the report of the Committee 
on Buildings and Grounds. Chairman Haigis introduced Mr. Galehouse 
of Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates, Inc. and asked him to present 
the proposal of the committee for a parking garage to be located in 
the ravine, west of the Campus Center. Mr. Galehouse described the 
need for the facility, pointing out that with building of the new 
Campus Center, we would lose 400 parking places in that area. With 
the addition of the planned Campus Center and the resultant increase 
in visitor traffic, the situation will become even more acute. 
There was discussion as to alternative solutions - also illustrated- 
as well as a review of the original campus Master Plan, which had 
anticipated the need for additional parking facilities to be 
located at strategic sites. Mr. Galehouse stated it was the recom- 
mendation of Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates, that the parking 
garage as described and illustrated, be constructed.

project by the University Building Authority. Treasurer Johnson 
said that, on a conservative basis of a daily 500 cars in the 
garage (half capacity) during the academic year, the project could 
be self-liquidated. After further discussion, motion was made,

Mr. Broadhurst then circulated three contracts for

majority of the members of the Board of Trustees. 

Mr. Broadhurst noted further that the legislation creating 
the University Building Authority limited the financial commitment 
to $60,000,000. The Authority is now committed to a total of 
$59,265,000. In order to proceed with the additional building re- 
quests, it is proposed to amend the Act extending the limit of 
financial commitment to $100,000,000. In addition, the proposed 
legislation would permit the Trustees, with the approval of the 
Governor, to have the Building Authority provide incidental academic 
space or utility connections for self-liquidating projects and to 
pay for these non-self- liquidating items by state appropriations or 
by lease rentals. The proposed draft also has a section on the 
interest ceiling on temporary borrowing by the authority. 

After full review and discussion, motion was made, 
seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To recommend to Governor Volpe the proposed 
legislation entitled "An Act to Amend the 
Act Creating the University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority" as presented to this meet-

Committee wished to recommend construction by the Building Authority 
of residence halls and dining facilities for September 1970 but 
could not until the debt ceiling is raised . 

The Chairman announced the appointment of the following to 
the Nominating Committee: Messrs. Crowley, Chairman; Emerson and 
Troy.

Mr. Glynn of Hugh Stubbins Associates submitted plans for 
review on Projects 9 and 10. 

Treasurer Johnson indicated dissatisfaction with some of 
the zone controlled heating in previously completed residence halls. 
Mr. Gflynn expressed confidence in the design. He attributed the 
difficulty to the human factor and pointed out that utilities items 
are still under one-year guarantee so the matter should be submitted 
for adjustment. 

Vice Chairman Healey requested the Board to vote its 
general approval of the plans, and delegate final authority for 
approval of the dormitory plans to the President. It was thereupon 
moved, seconded and

Chairman Haigis of the Buildings and Grounds Committee 
submitted to the Board the recommendation that the Homestead be 
removed to a site close to the Faculty Club and joined to the 
Faculty Club. He stated the Faculty Club will arrange to build 
their own connecting structure. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, 
and it was 

VOTED : To approve the removal of the Homestead to a 
site adjacent to the Faculty Club. 

Chairman pro tem Healey, as the Board's representative, 
advised the meeting of the appointment of Richard M. Millard as 
Chancellor of the Board of Higher Education of the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts . 

The meeting advanced to "Review of Master Plan Preliminary 
Outline." Chairman Healey commented that the full report was con- 
tained in the minutes of the meeting previously supplied. He empha- 
sized that the scope of the problems must be put in line of the 
overall plan and that progress is being made in this direction. 

In accord with the recommendation of the Executive Com- 
mittee, discussion was held relative to a change in procedure for 
the awarding of honorary degrees calculated to initiate the matter 
earlier in the year. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; That the Board of Trustees policy voted 
April 6, 1961 and amended June 9, 1962, 
is hereby further amended, and the policy 
and procedure for the awarding of honorary 
degrees as set forth in Document 67-04.6, 
which document is herewith attached to and 
made a part of these minutes, is hereby 
established, effective in 1967. 

Report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy 
was presented by Chairman Troy. Recommendations for selective merit 
increments were submitted. The Chairman noted that the administra- 
tion has worked out an elaborate system to make certain that

recommendations were arrived at fairly. Mr. Troy commented on the 
continuing difficulty of securing high quality faculty due to 
competitive salary structures in other colleges and universities. 
After motion was made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the recommendations for promotions 
as shown on Document 67-044 (Boston) and 
Document 67-045 (Amherst), effective 
February 5, 1967. 

Chairman Troy described the routine proposed for the 
establishment of a professional salary schedule and rounding off 
basic salaries as recommended by the Faculty and Educational Policy 
Committee at its meeting of January 18, 1967. After discussion, 
motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That the classification, salary and salary 

range of the professional staff in accordance 
with the provisions of section 14 of Chapter 
75 of the General Laws, as amended, effective 
on and after February 5, 1967 shall be established 
within the minimum weekly rate and maximum 
weekly rate of the General Salary schedule 
contained in paragraph (1) of section 46 of 
Chapter 30 of the General Laws as most recently 
amended by Chapter 635 of the Acts of 1966 in 
accordance with the weekly salary rates as con- 
tained in the schedule in Document 67-047 which 
document is herewith attached to and made a 
part of these minutes. 

In accordance with the recommendation of the committee, 
motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the schedule of Selective Merit 
Increments and the increases contained 
therein effective February 5, 1967 as 
contained in Document 67-042, which docu- 
ment is herewith attached to and made a 
part of these minutes. 

Chairman Troy informed the Board that student applications 
for transfer are increasing and we must take a harder, firmer look 
at the number the University takes in. The committee, together with 
the administration, will continue to study this matter. 

The Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy recom- 
mended raising the required cumulative grade point average from 1.8 
to 2.0 at the Amherst campus. Boston already uses this average. 
Survey reveals that 2.0 is required in most institutions. It was 
felt, in order to strengthen undergraduate standards, the average 
should move up to 2.0.

Chairman Troy stated the national acceptance of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts graduates at Graduate Schools was very 
gratifying . 

Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve 2.0 as the required cumulative 
average for graduation at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst, starting with 
the qualification that the administration 
has the right to make adjustment if the 
rate of attrition becomes excessive. 

Chairman Emerson reported that the January 11, 1967 minutes 
of the Trustee Committee on Government and University Relations had 
been circulated. A proposal to change the name of the athletic 
teams had been considered. All avenues will be explored and a 
report will be submitted. This matter is also being considered by 
the Board of Directors, Associate Alumni; by the Athletic Council 
and by the Student Senate. 

Chairman Emerson stated discussion was held on pending 
legislation. A summary of pertinent bills now on file in the 
General Court has been supplied to the members of the committee. 

Chancellor Ryan reported on the UM at Boston site selectior 
progress. He advised the Board that the administration and the con- 
sultants are proceeding with examination of all inner city sites, 
with no permanent solution in hand as yet. In the meantime, 
temporary space rental has been considered and negotiations are 
underway to provide 150,000 square feet within about one block of 
the principal present location. The Governor has supported the 
budget request for $400,000 for rental of additional temporary space. 
Space requirements for the next two years may exceed this amount. 
These matters, of course, are subject to Board approval including 
approval of the expenditure of the rental money. 

Chancellor Ryan informed the Board of a Boston neighbor- 
hood meeting at which he was encouraged to comment on the Uni- 
versity's interest in acquiring a particular site. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, President Lederle pre- 
sented the personnel actions. 

After comment by the President and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the personnel actions as 

detailed in Document 67-041, together with Supple- 
ment #1, which document and supplement are here-

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a^ quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, Chairman Boyden called the meeting 
to order at 2:00 p.m. 

The minutes of the previous meeting having been circu- 
lated and read, a motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
the Board of Trustees of January 31, 1967. 

Dean Soutter introduced Miss Philpott, Medical Librarian, 
and presented a report on the Medical School. 

The application for Federal assistance which had to 
clear through three separate agencies in Washington in order to 
secure matching funds for the construction of the Medical School 
building and library has been completed. The total cost of the 
building will come to $44., 696, 641. 

Dean Soutter explained the government procedures and the 
need for the three applications to separate agencies. The result 
is a request to the federal government for $24,491,713. Dean 
Soutter also stated that Governor Volpe next week will send a 
special message to the Legislature requesting capital funds for 
Medical School construction. This will cover matching funds for 
the school and planning and design of the hospital.

In response to a query, Dean Soutter stated the $44+ 
million includes construction of the Medical School, half of the 
boiler plant, the utility tunnel and the library. After discussion, 
motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer to sign the 
application for federal funds for the 
Medical School in the name of the 
Trustees. 

President Lederle commented on the recent fire on the 
Amherst campus, in which the "Conservation" building was destroyed. 
The loss, he stated, was primarily one of space since the theatre 
group used this building for storage and rehearsal activities. 
They must now suspend plans for further production for balance of 
the semester. This structure was one of the original buildings on 
campus and the loss is regrettable also from the historical view- 
point . 

Chairman Boyden called for the report of the Nominating 
Committee, which was presented by its chairman, Trustee Crowley. 
On motion made and seconded that the Secretary be authorized to 
cast one vote, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To elect the following officers' of the 
Board of Trustees for the ensuing year: 

Chairman - Dr. Frank L. Boyden 
Vice Chairman - Joseph P. Healey 
Secretary - Robert J. McCartney 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve the list of committee chair- 
men and members of committees of the 
Board of Trustees as detailed in Docu- 
ment 67-053, which document is herewith 
attached to and made a part of these 
minutes. 

Trustee Haigis, Chairman of the Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds, stated that members of his committee had made pre- 
liminary investigation for location of new residence halls, one to 
accommodate 900 students (to be located near the north dining 
commons) and a second for 500 students (to be located in the 
vicinity of the south dining commons). Preliminary surveys indi- 
cate a new dining commons might be feasible southwest of the present 
Orchard Hill complex, south of the President's House. 

He added that the site for the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston had been receiving intensive consideration, and it is ex- 
pected a report will be prepared by March or April, with complete 
presentation to the Board of Trustees in May. Public announcement 
of a permanent site selection could be made by June if approved by 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the Board. Chairman Haigis stated that criteria must be 
established by which these sites can be judged, i.e., parking 
space; research space; percent of seats to be occupied at one time; 
development potential; economic feasibility; construction costs; 
availability; dislocation of people, etc. He said everything will 
be done that is possible to speed the decision making process, but 
in the meantime sites must be judged against criteria which has 
been found acceptable. 

Chairman Troy reported for the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy. He commented on progress in the University 
library as reported to the committee by Acting Director of 
Libraries Clay. The first problem, Chairman Troy said, was the 
number of volumes. We are behind comparable institutions; the 
supply is totally inadequate to support the programs. Another 
problem is the use of faculty who work part time in the library 
because of the need for their scholarly expertise; it is hoped in 
the future to acquire help who will have this ability. Professor 
Clay and the architects have been conferring on developing plans 
for the new library. Copies of a classifications system for pro- 
fessional librarians were supplied to the committee who agreed it 
is an intelligent plan. The professional staff had approved the 
plan without a dissenting vote prior to submission to the committee 
The salary schedules were equated with comparable institutions 
throughout the country. Chairman Troy, for the committee, 
recommended approval of the proposed classification system. Motion 
was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the proposed classification 
system for professional librarians as 
set forth in Document 67-050, which 
document is herewith attached to and 
made a part of these minutes. 

Chairman Troy described the difficulty in securing first- 
rate scholars to head departments at this time, particularly in 
the fields of Psychology, Economics and English. He stated that 
Dean Hunsberger had appeared before the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy to report on these difficulties and to ask for 
guidelines as to salary ceiling limits. 

Chairman Troy noted that the search for personnel is a 
time consuming task. Top-notch appointees draw top-notch junior 
faculty and graduate students. This is the. way to build a Uni- 
versity. He suggested the Executive Committee might like to meet 
soon and recommend something concrete as a guideline on salary 
ceilings. 

A report on Continuing Education had been submitted by 
Dean of Administration Redfern to the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy. This is a result of long and comprehensive 
study. The committee took no action. Trustee Troy said no one 
questions the need and value of Continuing Education, but it should

be viewed within the framework of the Master Plan and costs should 
be carefully weighed in terms of priorities. It should be studied 
within the framework of the entire state picture so there will not 
be overlapping. The University of Massachusetts in Boston, Educa- 
tional TV, Medical School, and so on are all scheduled for imple- 
mentation. The priorities are quality education in Amherst and 
Boston and at the Medical School in Worcester. 

Chairman Troy then asked Dean Redfern to speak for the 
report on Continuing Education. The Dean summarized, noting that 
the subject has been under study for three or four years, be- 
ginning with an informal "ad hoc committee, a work group on fees and 
charges and discussions with selected people engaged in continuing 
education. The latter included representatives of the Massachusetts 
Adult Education Association and the former Division of University 
Extension (Department of Education) and the Boston University 
Metropolitan College. 

Dean Redfern said the report incorporated some 
suggestions by the Deans' Council. The program would be based on 
existing schools. It envisages a small planning and coordinating 
staff which is badly needed even under current conditions. No 
particular reorganization of current units or structure would be 
required as the University already performs a variety of activities 
in Continuing Education. The small staff could take care of the 
"housekeeping details." 

Dean Redfern continued that the Board of Higher Education 
has asked the University and other segments of education to get to- 
gether to develop recommendations for some sort of coordination of 
this type of effort in order that programs at individual institu- 
tions would be working together with maximum effectiveness. 

Trustee Gordon inquired as to whether this proposed pro- 
gram would be compatible with the New England Center program at 
Durham. Dr. Redfern stated it would, and, in fact is essential if 
the University of Massachusetts is to carry out its share of 
responsibility for regional programs in Continuing Education. 

Trustee Healey.said, in view of the development of the 
Master Plan and in view of the fact the Board of Higher Education 
has shown some interest in coordinating, it would seem this matter 
should be referred to the Executive Committee for study. It should 
be studied within the concepts being developed for the Master Plan. 

Dean Redfern asked for an expression of Trustee posture 
on this question. A motion was made, seconded, and it was then 

VOTED : To refer the matter of the Continuing 
Education program to the Executive 
Committee for further study. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Trustee Healey said the sense of the meeting was the 
Board has a sincere interest in the problem of Continuing Education 

Considered next was the subject of the Ph.D. Program in 
Physics at Lowell Technological Institute. This is the first 
doctoral program submitted for joint approval under the procedures 
instituted by the Harrington-Willis Act. Chairman Troy stated this 
proposal has been studied by the Graduate Council Curriculum 
Committee, the Graduate Council, and the Faculty Senate Academic 
Matters Committee. There were unanimous votes to recommend the 
proposal to the Board of Trustees and to the Faculty Senate Academi^ 
Matters Committee . 

Interest was expressed in assuring continuance of high 
academic standards. It was stated that the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion will also have to approve this proposal. 

Dean Moore of the Graduate School explained that the 
right to give the degree can be withdrawn if the qualifications 
set by the University are not met. He noted that his office had 
the right to review the program and to keep a record of progress. 

In response to query, Dean Moore informed the Trustees 
that the diploma as issued will not carry the name of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, but the name of the institution where the 
student does the work. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Physics Doctoral Program 
for Lowell Technological Institute as 
submitted under the provisions of the 
Willis Act (section 18, ch. 572, 1965 
Acts of the Commonwealth) . 

Chairman Troy described a meeting with Professor Norton, 
Mr. Ward of the Fine Arts Council and Mr. Friedman of the Student 
Senate, in which a budget was submitted, the effect of which is to 
establish a Fine Arts fee of $3.00 per semester, although this is 
$1.00 less than that provided for under the constitution of the 
Fine Arts Council. It was stated the proposed fee had been approved 
by the Student Senate. Discussion was held concerning appropriate- 
ness of paying a secretary for the Fine Arts Council out of the 
student fee. The proposed program also called for establishing 
the position of a staff assistant. This would be funded by the 
University. 

Mr. Greenquist, President of the Student Senate, stated 
the Fine Arts Council had not presented the cost of the secretary 
or the staff assistant to the Student Senate at the time of the 
budget meeting and therefore their approved budget did not include 
these items. The students are recorded as approving the budget in 
its total amount, which sets the fee at $3.00. Professor Norton, 
for the Fine Arts Council, stated they did not recommend these

Chancellor Ryan asked for clarification, to insure that 
this assessment applied only to the Amherst campus and did not in- 
clude UM at Boston. Provost Tippo concurred. 

Trustee Haigis noted his concern over the matter of stu- 
dent fees being used to fund employee salaries. He stated this 
should be subject to future consideration and review. 

The report of the Committee on Government and University 
Relations was made by Chairman Emerson. He noted that the 
resolutions about to be discussed had been supplied to the Board 
in advance of the meeting. 

Bill H.R.875 deals with grants and their control. The 
Chairman stated it was the committee position that these were more 
flexibly handled by the institutions themselves. Motion was then 
made, seconded, and the following resolution was voted: 

RESOLVED: The Trustees of the University of Massa- 
chusetts, aware of the mounting needs being 
placed upon higher education, and aware of 
the already strenuous efforts being made by 
state governments and private benefactors 
to finance these burdens, and further aware 
that serious deficiencies currently exist 
in various forms of federal aid, such as 
complex proposal-grant-accounting require- 
ments and more seriously distortion of in- 
stitutional goals through influence of 
specific project approaches by off-campus 
agencies, hereby endorses and supports the 
concept of federal assistance based upon 
sustained general institutional support as 
contained in H.R.875, now before the 
federal Congress. 

Chairman Emerson next referred to State Senate Bill S.267 
for activation of educational television, Channel 57, by establish- 
ment of an Educational Television Center at the University. After 
discussion, motion was made, seconded, and it was voted: 

RESOLVED: The Board of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts hereby reaffirms its support 
of S.267 which would direct the Trustees to 
establish, construct and maintain an educa- 
tional television center for the promotion

and dissemination of educational programs 
for the benefit and enrichment of the 
citizens of the Commonwealth. 

The Center would he the organizational 
entity within the University of Massachu- 
setts for the operation of Channel 57 when 
awarded by the Federal Communications 
Commission. 

A resolution in opposition to H.326 and H.3903, and 
supporting fiscal autonomy for the University was proposed. On 
motion made and seconded, it was thereupon voted: 

RESOLVED: The Board of Trustees of the University 
of Massachusetts, more firmly convinced 
than ever, on the basis of continued ex- 
perience, as to the value and efficiency 
of fiscal accountability and autonomy to 
public institutions of higher education 
in the Commonwealth, reaffirms its unani- 
mous opposition to repeal or to limita- 
tions upon this essential element of in- 
stitutional management and growth. 

Chairman Emerson next introduced discussion of Senate 
266, providing salary relief for the professional staff of the 
University Medical School. This will enable the Dean of the Medi- 
cal School to engage a high quality faculty for the Medical School, 
Following discussion, motion was made, seconded, and it was 
voted: 

RESOLVED: The Board of Trustees of the University 
of Massachusetts unanimously endorses 
S.266, a bill introduced by Senate Presi- 
dent Maurice A. Donahue, to authorize the 
Board to establish salaries of the offi- 
cers and members of the University Medical 
School. This legislation is absolutely 
essential if a first-class medical school 
is to be established by the Commonwealth 
and if the necessary quality of staff is 
to be obtained for the operation of the 
School and the training of medical students. 

The Board of Trustees expresses its apprecia- 
tion for the support thus far given in 
planning the Medical School and urges enact- 
ment of this legislation as a means for 
effectively implementing the development 
and operation of the University Medical 
School.

The Chairman brought to the attention of the Board, House 
2988 which would have the effect of submitting all federal grants 
and subventions to the state treasurer. Trustee Emerson stated 
the committee's opposition to this bill and recommended the 
adoption of the proposed resolution. Motion was made, seconded, 
and it was voted: 



Federal 
Grants 



RESOLVED: The Board of Trustees of the University 
of Massachusetts strongly opposes H.2988, 
which seeks, to have all federal subventions 
and grants paid directly to the State 
Treasurer. The effect of such a bill, in 
addition to complicating project proposals 
and grant agreements between the federal 
government and state institutions of higher 
learning, would seriously weaken the ability 
of these institutions to conduct research, 
to meet the cost-sharing principle involved 
in federal grants, to encourage service and 
publication functions, and to attract 
federal funds to Massachusetts. No other 
state in the nation, to the best of our 
knowledge, has such a provision affecting 
federal programs of assistance to public 
higher education. 

We also call attention to the fact that in 
a resolution of June 8, 1966, the Board of 
Higher Education strongly opposed similar 
legislation on the' grounds such provisions 
would weaken the ability of public educa- 
tional institutions to compete for and ob- 
tain federal grants, weaken their ability 
to attract notable faculty, weaken their 
ability to conduct selected programs of 
educational quality at no added cost to the 
Commonwealth, and would cut off support for 
a number of graduate students. 

Furthermore, there is no possibility of 
building a quality Medical School program 
under such restrictions. 

Chairman Emerson advised the Board that on March 8, the 
bills dealing with autonomy and the Educational TV Center (in addi- 
tion to several others introduced or supported by Senator Donahue) 
will have hearings at the State House. These have great interest 
for the University and its Board. Trustees will be invited to 
attend . 



President Lederle presented the personnel actions noting 
that they had been circulated in advance of the meeting. Approval 
was recommended. It was thereupon moved, seconded and

Trustee Gordon questioned whether the Massachusetts F^'ne 
Arts Council might be able to help in supplying some of the items 
which had been lost to the University in the recent fire in the 
Conservation Building. President Lederle noted that a member of 
the Council is also a member of the University staff and it will be 
brought to his attention for consideration. 

Chancellor Ryan, at the invitation of the President, ad- 
vised the Board that temporary space has been found for 1969-70, 
within a block of the present UM at Boston structure. If sufficient 
space is rented at this time, the estimated rental cost will exceed 
by $150,000 the ajnount of money presently recommended in the 
Governor's budget and may necessitate a request for a supplemental 
appropriation. With the additional space, however, it will be 
possible to accommodate 3,500 students.

The President next introduced a recommendation of the 
Executive Committee for a pre-registration fee - new students, for 
the Boston campus. The purpose of the fee was described as pro- 
viding a new program for entering students prior to enrollment. 
It is intended to (1) assess their special academic strengths and 
weaknesses; (2) increase their understanding of the University re- 
quirements and curriculum; (3) assist them to plan their academic 
program and accommodate their special need for study time, travel 
time, work time and other essential factors, (4) determine the 
appropriate level of entry to language, science and mathematics 
courses, (5) improve their comprehension of study habits and per- 
formance standards necessary to success in the University and (6) 
generally acquaint them with the students, faculty and program of 
the University. 

Following discussion, it was noted that this proposal had 
been checked with Attorney Broadhurst to insure its appropriateness 
Motion was then made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED: In accordance with the provisions of Chapter 
877 of the Acts of 1965, to establish a Pre- 
Registration Fee in the amount of fifteen 
dollars ($15.00) to be assessed to all new 
students entering the University of Massa- 
chusetts - Boston commencing with those 
entering in the fall of 1967 to be billed 
and payable at the time the student confirms 
intention to matriculate, said fee to be 
held in a non-refundable trust fund entitled 
Pre-Registration Fee - New Students - Boston 
and disbursed under the direction of the 
Chancellor for the purposes of providing a 
program or programs of introduction to the

supplying of services and materials in-

testing, placement, student life and 
other orientation programs and activities 
that may from time to time be determined 
by the President and the Chancellor to be 
necessary or desirable. The Orientation 
and Counselling Fee - Amherst will not be 
assessed students at Boston. 

An increase in the Student Union Fee (at Amherst) to 
$15.00 has been recommended, after discussion, by the Executive 
Committee, President Lederle said. The students have been consulted 
and through their student government have voted approval of it. The 
adoption of the increase at this time will enable the students to 
plan for the fall semester. Later, the Student Union Fee may be 
turned over to the Building Authority by vote of the Trustees to 
complete the amortization of the Union and the Campus Center. Since 
the seniors will not have an opportunity to use the new Center, they 
are excluded from payment of the fee. 

Discussion was held; motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED ; Effective with the fall semester 1967, the 
Student Union Fee - Amherst is revised and 
increased to fifteen dollars ($15.00) per 
semester to be payable by all undergraduate 
students except those classified as "special" 
by reason of part-time matriculation and said 
fee shall not be waived for those students who 
might otherwise under University regulations 
receive waiver of tuition provided that the 
standard University policy pertaining to re- 
funds shall apply in like manner as to tuition 
where applicable and provided further that the 
Student Union Fee for academic periods of less 
than a full semester shall be at the rate of 
$1.00 per week, provided that students graduat- 
ing in the Class of 1968 will be assessed $10.00 
per semester. 

The Executive Committee has considered and recommended 
that the transfers between subsidiary accounts as submitted be 
authorized, the President reported. After review and discussion, 
motion was made, seconded, and it was

President Lederle, for the Chairman of the Executive Com- 
mittee, introduced the matter of an increase in the investment 
counsel fees for Standish, Ayer and Wood, Inc., in accord with a 
letter from them in which they indicated advancing costs and re- 
sponsibilities brought about the need for a re-evaluation of 
charges. The Chairman of the Finance Committee, Trustee Pumphret, 
read excerpts from the letter of Standish, Ayer and Wood, Inc. in- 
dicating the aforementioned reasons for the increase. He commented 
on the satisfactory relationship with these consultants and the 
equity of the fee proposed. After motion was made and seconded, it 
was then 

VOTED : To approve an increase in t he investment 
counsel fees for Standish, Ayer and Wood, 
Inc., from $1,000 per year to $2,000 per 
year for the Endowment Fund and from $500 
per year to $1,000 per year for the 
Operating Fund to be paid from the income 
from each fund effective with the period 
commencing February 1, 1967. 

President Lederle then noted it was often necessary for 
the University to enter into agreement or contracts, including the 
application for federal grants with the federal government. In 
order to expedite routine, the Executive Committee recommended the 
Treasurer be authorized to enter into such contracts. Motion was 
made, seconded, and it was

VOTED ; Under the authority provided by Sections 3A 
and 11 of Chapter 75 of the General Laws, 
the Treasurer of the University of Massa- 
chusetts is hereby delegated the authority 
to enter into agreements or contracts with 
the federal government or agencies thereof, 
including the application for federal grants, 
where such agreements or contracts will pro- 
mote the objectives of the University and 
are consistent with other policies, rules 
and regulations established by the Trustees. 

President Lederle introduced to the meeting Mrs. Spengler 
of the Board of Trustees of State Colleges. 

The report of the Faculty and Educational Policy Committee 
was given by Chairman Troy. Chairman Troy commented upon the 
problem of the search for Headships in several key departments, 
particularly Psychology and Economics. He said again Dean Hunsbergei 
reported on difficulties encountered and the competition for superior 
people; the problem is largely money. Reports of progress made as 
well as the disappointments were submitted to the committee. Chair- 
man Troy said money is the key factor and the result depends largely 
on the Trustees' recommendations. It was, in general, the feeling 
the Dean should have hope and be guaranteed he can be somewhat 
flexible in offers made to key people. 

Chairman Troy advised the importance of a top man is re- 
flected in the calibre of the graduate students. He went on to say 
consideration had also been given to young men on the way up. The 
results of the search will be reported. 

The Regional Undergraduate Program has been under con- 
sideration by the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy, the 
Chairman reported. Massachusetts receives very few out-of-state 
students; there is a feeling that one reason for the limited number 
of exchange students is that many regional programs do not permit 
entrance at the freshman year. It is recommended for a trial period 
of three years, admission for all undergraduate regional programs 
should be at the freshman year at in-state or resident tuition rates, 
Transfer privileges into regional programs would be available even 
though the student did not start with the freshman year. 

Chairman Troy said one of the reasons for this program is 
to try to avoid duplication of courses. While it is not a very im- 
pressive program at this time, it is useful and it is hoped that the 
program will become much more flexible over the years, where compe- 
tent students from any place in the nation might come here and our 
students go there, thus expanding geographically. 

After discussion, a motion was made, seconded, and it was 



I

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : That for a trial period of 1968-69 through 
1970-71 admission for all undergraduate re- 
gional programs may be at the freshman year 
at in-state tuition rates; 

that transfer privileges into regional pro- 
grams will still be available for qualified 
upper classmen, as at present; 

that the operation of the regional programs 
should be continually reviewed, with a major 
re-evaluation during 1970-71. 

In response to question, it was stated this applies only 
to those programs which are spelled out, not to just any program. 
The whole theory is to have institutions maximize their strengths; 
the hope here is that we can balance this up. The program is based 
on uniqueness. Each school lists specialized programs which will 
accept students on this arrangement. It is a modest attempt to 
encourage exchange. Chairman Troy expressed the hope that this 
could be extended perhaps to a graduate program at some future time. 
He further said he vrould like to see a study made of the possibility 
of a series of agreements with state institutions throughout the 
country. 

Provost Tippo, at the invitation of the Chairman, briefly 
described a proposed change in the Amherst Faculty Senate Constitu- 
tion. This change had been approved at a meeting of the general 
faculty, in accordance with prescribed rule. It proposes deletion 
of a committee. The Provost explained that at the time this motion 
was framed, section (m) of Article 8 established the Senate Review 
Committee. Subsequently, Article (k) having to do with the Fine 
Arts Council, was deleted leaving the Review Committee as section 
(1). The motion is presented as originally framed with the intent 
that the Review Committee be abolished. Its function will be taken 
over by the Rules Committee. 

Motion was accordingly made, seconded, and it was then 

VOTED ; To delete section (m) Article 8 from the 
Constitution of the Faculty Senate. 

Trustee Troy concluded his report. 

After brief comment and upon motion made and seconded, it 
was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the personnel actions 
as detailed in Document 67-054 and Supplement 
#1, which documents are herewith attached to

Chairman Crowley asked Chancellor Ryan to comment on the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston. 

Chancellor Ryan said in order to accommodate the program 
for next year, it is necessary to increase space by one and a half 
times. The Chancellor said plans and neogitations are underway to 
assure space; and he will soon be able to present a report as to the 
space and the resources needed to retain it. 

The budget recommendations for 1967-68 are prepared and 
Chancellor Ryan advised attempts are being made to revise and im- 
prove the budget statement as it is inadequate for the program as 
presently constituted. The problem in Boston differs from older 
institutions because they must create and build new things all the 
time. There were four specific areas of special need including: 

1. staff support (non-academic) 

2. support for research (programs and projects) 

3. support for development of library 

4. support for broadening of basic programs 

It is imperative to improve the budget if these are to be achieved. 

The admissions picture was described by the Chancellor as 
transitional this year. He stated that much of the admissions work 
is now being done in Boston by Boston people. At the moment there 
are 3,000 admissions applications; it is possible to accept only 
1,000 new students. This compares about the same with last year.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

There was discussion concerning the need for enrichment 
money as the program moves into the Junior and Senior years. 

Chancellor Ryan anticipated submitting a request and 
recommendation to the Board which would be effectual in getting at 
least a portion of the needed space for this fiscal year. He ex- 
pects at the next meeting of the Board to submit specifications. 
It is necessary to have clearances by April or May in order to 
execute lease arrangements for July 1967. Sufficient renovations 
for 2,600 students are needed for next September. 

In response to inquiry from Trustee Kiernan as to how much 
lead time is needed for long range, the Chancellor said for adapting 
office space, for science labs, etc. a year; less time for library 
space and very little time for office space. 

Trustee Solomon inquired what the Boston campus does for 
the health situation of the students . The Chancellor outlined the 
provisions, including (since last July) a Director of Health Ser- 
vices, a physician, a part-time assistant, nurse, and secretary. 
He said the Health Clinic area is inadequate, but phase II of the 
renovation plan is designed to enlarge this area. 

Chancellor Ryan commented that it is astounding to con- 
sider that one-third of all the students have no family doctor at 
all. The assistance of the Advisory Committee during the past year 
has been most helpful. It is hoped to increase the health services 
available to the students and to increase the ability to respond to 
the environmental health concerns. 

Trustee Lyons made reference to a letter received from 
the Secretary of the University requesting Honorary Degree recommen- 
dations for 1968. He asked that the preceding approved list be 
revived and supplied to the Trustees for their current consideration 
It was agreed to do this. 

In the absence of Trustee Healey, the report of the 
Trustee delegate to the Board of Higher Education was postponed. 

There being no unfinished business to come before the 
meeting, the meeting was adjourne^at^:55 p.m.

MINUTES OF MEETING OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 
April 17, 1967, 2:00 p.m., Southwest Commons #2, Amherst 



PRESENT : President Lederle; Trustees Brown, 
Emerson, Gordon, Haigis, Lambson, 
Lyons, McNamara, Plimpton, Pumphret, 
Rowland, Troy; Treasurer Johnson, 
Secretary McCartney, Miss Coulter. 

PRESENT BY 

INVITATION : Provost Tippo, Chancellor Ryan, 

Dean Redfern, Dean Soutter; 

Mr. Frank O'Brien, UM/Boston 

and Professor Leed representing 

the Faculty Senate. 

In the absence of the Chairman and Vice Chairman, Trustee 
Gordon was elected Chairman pro tem. 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
Chairman pro tem Gordon. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
the Board of Trustees held March 16, 1967. 

President Lederle was invited to address the Board. The 
President said that studies show two- thirds of our students come 
from families which cannot afford full costs of a University educa- 
tion. In many cases both parents work in order to educate the 
children. The University support of bill HR 875 is predicated on 
these facts. 

The President informed the Board that S 266, the Bill on 
salaries for the Medical School, has been referred to the Ways and 
Means Committee. He reiterated the need for flexibility in this 
area if there is to be an atmosphere conducive to securing top 
quality professional staff and a superior medical school. 

President Lederle said S 267 to establish an Educational 
Television Center has been reported adversely by the Education 
Committee. There is a possibility of obtaining funds in the budget, 
but as far as the bill is concerned, it is dead for this session. 

He continued that H 2988, which seeks to have federal sub- 
ventions and grants paid to the State Treasurer rather than to the 
University, had been opposed by the University.

The President said the University is threatened with a 
suit about an art exhibit which was taken down. He said proper 
procedure was not followed when the exhibit was put up. It was 
placed in an improper location where it was viewed not only by 
those wishing to do so, but of necessity by others using the 
premises. He said that, as a University, we need not feel obliged 
to display or provide an outlet for every creative work or exhibit 
of students or the faculty. 

Secretary McCartney next submitted for vote and signature 
(at the request of Trustee Pumphret, Chairman of the University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority) copies of leases of the sites for 
the Eighth Project and Ninth and Tenth Projects. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : WHEREAS the University of Massachusetts Build- 
ing Authority (the Authority) created by

and Grounds Committee, stated the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston space needs were the major concern of the meeting held 
April 12, 1967. In order to accommodate its programs for this

and sound system; Alternate No. 4, in- 
stallation of 208 volt panels and feeders, 
and Alternate No. 5, relighting sixth 
floor areas. 

Chairman Haigis next advised of the urgency for providing 
additional residence hall and dining facilities for September 1970. 
It was thereupon moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To request the University Building 

Authority to commence a design study 
for two residence halls for 14-00 stu- 
dents to be completed and available 
for occupancy by September 1970 and 
to be located so that about half those 
housed could eat with North Dining 
Commons and the other half in the South 
Dining Commons. 

Trustee Haigis asked the Treasurer to describe a proposal 
recommended by the Committee on Buildings and Grounds relative to 
property owned by Miss Ruth Mclntire. Treasurer Johnson described 
the area under discussion, stating it was in the nature of a dona- 
tion of a land tract between one and a half and two acres, adjoin- 
ing the University campus, to the southwest of Butterfield resi- 
dence hall and south of the Apiary. Miss Mclntire proposes this 
gift subject to the condition that it be maintained as an undis- 
turbed wildlife sanctuary. In exchange, it is proposed that the 
University deed a hundred foot strip to her, across the southern 
end of its woodland, to the south of Butterfield Hall. There was 
discussion, encompassing the desirability of acquiring the present 
Mclntire residential tract and dwelling, amounting to approximately 
.94 acres. Trustee Haigis advised the matter was still under 
discussion. A further report will be made at a subsequent meeting. 

Chairman Haigis next described a tract of land, consist- 
ing of 24.7 acres, the property of William and Louise Sheldon, 
which the University has an option to buy. After discussion, and 
upon motion made and seconded, it was 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that, 
in accordance with Chapter 590, Acts of 
1966, item 8067-69, authorizing the Trustees 
of the University to acquire land, or land

eminent domain under Chapter 79 of the 
General Laws, for the further development 
of the University; independent appraisals 
of the value of the land and buildings, if 
any, having been made by qualified disin- 
terested appraisers and filed with Kenneth 
W. Johnson, Treasurer; that the Trustees of 
the University purchase or take by eminent 
domain in fee a portion, 24.7 acres more or 
less, of the property of William and Louise 
Sheldon, located in Amherst and Hadley, 
Massachusetts, adjacent to and west of 
parcels 4 and 6 of Page 8A of the Amherst 
Town Atlas (1964) and that the purchase 
price for said property be Forty-Nine 
Thousand ($49,000) dollars. 

Chairman Haigis briefly described the meeting of his 
committee held this morning with five Town of Amherst selectmen, 
Town Manager Torrey and the Chief of the Amherst Fire Department, 
Mr. Doherty. He said it was the kind of a meeting which ought to 
be held more often as the University grows, in view of the im- 
portance of University expansion in the Town of Amherst. He 
described it as a very cordial meeting with a useful exchange of 
ideas, and a spirit of cooperation toward solution of mutual 
problems. 

There was discussion of the overall fire protection 
situation including the problem of financing and the assistance 
the University has already extended to the Town. 

The President presented Personnel Actions and after brief 
comment and upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously

Members of the Press. 



The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Chairman at 2:05 p.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

V OTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees of April 17, 1967. 

Trustee Haigis, Chairman of the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds, presented his committee's report. He referred to the search 
for a site for the University of Massachusetts at Boston, stating no 
recommendation would be made at this meeting. However, the Univer- 
sity professional site consultants have been invited to address the 
meeting, as well as Chancellor Ryan of the University at Boston. 

Mr. Sasaki of Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates, introduced 
Mr. Richard Galehouse, senior planner in charge of the University 
project. Mr. Galehouse described the role of his company, defining 
the interpretation of goals and objectives of the University. He 
said there are four major components as relate to site: 

(1) Students - where do they come from? 

(2) Faculty - particular desires and bent of each. 

(3) Program - formal teaching program. 

(4) Extension and research activities carried on 
by land-grant institutions. 

Mr. Galehouse said the planner must then interpret, clarify and re- 
fine these objectives, as they apply to a public, urban University

for commuter students. For a period of fourteen months, the firm 
of Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates have been working on this pro- 
gram. Mr. Galehouse outlined the many factors involved including 
space requirements, which necessitate consideration of land, build- 
ings and amount of space. These factors in turn are affected by 
location, i.e. parking, neighborhood. Site criteria are developed 
on the basis of five vital factors: 

(1) Size 

(2) Location 

(3) Development, potential 

(4) Economic feasibility 

(5) Availability 

Chancellor Ryan of the University at Boston next addressed 
the Board. He described the beginnings of the University at Boston 
in 1965, to provide college places for thousands of commuter stu- 
dents in the Boston metropolitan area. Enrollment currently is at 
2,000 sutdents and is expected to grow to 15,000 in the mid-1980's. 
The main University prupose is to provide high quality education at 
lowest possible cost to students who otherwise might never be able 
to attend college. This means that the Boston campus must remain 
a commute institution on a site served by rapid transit. To insure 
the accessibility and availability of daily contact with cultural, 
social, economic and political life of the city, it is vital that 
access to the conditions and institutions of the city be easily 
available as part of the student's class work and extra-curricular 
activities . 

Chairman Haigis declared it had not been the intent of 
the Buildings and Grounds Committee to come to a final decision on 
the important matter of site for the University at Boston, but 
merely to make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees contingent 
on discussion with interested parties. Mr. Haigis continued that 
the support of the Governor and Legislature is, of course, vitally 
necessary. The decision must be made on more logical grounds than 
the mere availability of vacant land. 

Trustee Emerson noted that Trustees serve without compen- 
sation. They have held 35-40 meetings on proposed UK/Boston site 
locations. The judgments of the consultants, as reviewed earlier 
in this meeting, are taken into account. It was pointed out that 
the Trustees need not accept the advice of consultants. For example^ 
the decision on the Medical School went contrary to the recommenda- 
tions of the consultants. Nevertheless all the factors are sub- 
mitted to the Board of Trustees for their information and considera- 
tion. In the present case of the site for the University at Boston, 
among the locations considered have been: the Turnpike site; the 
Channel area; South Station; Columbia Point; Highland Park; Water- 
town Arsenal and the Charlestown Prison. The consultants have 
given close review to at least fifteen locations. 

Trustee Thompson stated that the Boston Labor Council, 
representing 250,000 members has set up a committee to help the 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Board of Trustees find the site and "fight for it to come into the 
City of Boston" . Mr . Thompson said the people represented by the 
Labor Council are the kind of people the Board and the University 
are concerned with - actually living in Boston and in need of the 
kind of educational opportunity afford by HM at Boston. 

Chairman Haigis expressed the appreciation of the com- 
mittee for Mr. Thompson's comments. 

Trustee Healey commended the committee for its efforts 
and stated that the obligation of the Board is to see that the 
young people are educated. 

In response to a request from Trustee Thompson, President 
Lederle supplied the following data; 

The .Amherst campus has 17,000 applications 
for the fall of 1967. There is available 
room for 3,100 freshmen. 

It was hoped that the Boston campus would relieve some of these 
pressures by having space available for students in that area. It 
is probable there will be 15,000 students in Boston by 1980. 

Mr. Thompson made a motion that the report of the Build- 



ings and Grounds Committee be accepted as one 
motion was seconded, and it was 



progress . This 



VOTED : To accept the report of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds as demonstrating 
progress in the search for a permanent site 
for the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston. 

The report of the Committee on Finance was given by Chair- 
man Pumphret. He noted that, although no vote is necessary at this 
time, the Committee on Buildings and Grounds may by next fall 
recommend consideration of an interest-bearing loan to finance the 
Faculty Club addition. 

Briefly outlined were the results of a committee meeting 
with Messrs. Wood and Ladd of Standish, Ayer and Wood, Inc. invest- 
ment counsel for the University. After thorough discussion, the 
Chairman said recommendations were submitted for changes in the in- 
vestment portfolio. It is necessary to authorize Treasurer Johnson 
to execute these changes. Accordingly, motion was made, seconded, 
and it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the Treasurer of the Uni- 
versity Kenneth W. Johnson, to execute 
the changes in orders in the University's 
investment portfolio as recommended by 
Standish, Ayer & Wood, Inc. in accordance 
with the following schedule:

The Operating Fund was left status quo. 

The Finance Committee, after consideration, felt that 
changes in market conditions made it advisable to insure investment 
flexibility. A motion was made to rescind a previously established 
vote. Motion was seconded, and it was then 

VOTED : To rescind the existing policy requiring 

minimum earnings of 4i$ on savings accounts 
and 5% on Certificates of Deposit. 

Chairman Pumphret stated that some of the associates of 
the Chancellor at the University of Massachusetts in Boston have 
provided a fund to provide an award to worthy students. In accord 
with the recommendation of the Committee on Finance, a motion was 
made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That the John W. Ryan 1966 Faculty- 
Convocation Award Fund be included in the 
Endowment Funds of the University in 
accordance with the terms of the grant 
attached herewith. (Document 67-066-A). 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Finance Committee further recommended to the Board 
that the contract for the Voluntary Group Disability Income In- 
surance Program be awarded to the Boston Mutual Life Insurance 
Company. Chairman Pumphret explained that the expense of this pro- 
gram would be borne by the employees who wish to assume it; the 
University arranges only for payroll deductions. The Boston Mutual 
Life Insurance Company was the low bidder. Motion was thereupon 
made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To award the contract for the Voluntary 

Group Disability Income Insurance Program 
to Boston Mutual Life Insurance Company, 
Boston, Massachusetts (Agent: James D. 
Raymond Insurance Agency, Inc., 41 Main 
Street, Northampton, Massachusetts) in 
accordance with specifications on file in 
the Office of the Treasurer, and specifically 
that the entire cost of said program be paid 
by the employees who elect to join the program. 

Trustee Healey, though present, did not participate in 
the discussion nor did he vote. It was noted also that Trustee 
Healey did not participate in the procedures preliminary to award- 
ing of the contract. 

The Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy reported a meeting was held on May 8, which dealt with new 
programs. Dean Picha and members of his staff presented proposals 
of the School of Engineering for a revision of the M.S. degree and 
establishment of the Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. Chairman 
Troy said the Ph.D's are in growing demand in industry and also in 
the area of professional training staff. The department is 
technically equipped and has the manpower to carry on tiie proposed 
program effectively. Motion was then made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the revision of the M.S. degree 

program and a doctoral program in Mechanical 
Engineering, as outlined in Document 67-059. 

The committee also recommended that an undergraduate pro- 
gram in Aerospace Engineering be established, in response to the 
needs of the aerospace industry. Chairman Troy said the training 
is very complex and the proposed program is intended to meet those 
needs. A motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To establish an undergraduate Aerospace 
Engineering Program as outlined in 
Document 67-060. 

The Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy next introduced the recommendation to the Board of an appro- 
priate change of name in the Engineering Department. A motion was 
made and seconded, and it was then

Chairman Troy informed the Board that Dean Hunsberger and 
Dean Wagner, accompanied by Professors Bezanson and duBois had 
appeared before the committee to submit a proposal for a Bachelor 
of Music degree. This degree is offered in 83 other institutions 
recognized by NASM. It differs from the B.A. currently offered, 
chiefly in that more attention is given to mastery of an instrument 
or development of voice. After discussion, motion was made, 
seconded, and it was then

detailed in Document 67-061, which document

In response to Trustee Solomon's query as to the wisdom 
of fragmenting the degrees to this extent, Chairman Troy stated this 
question had been raised in committee and dissipated by department 
explanation and subsequent discussion. Trustee Lyons added - there 
appear to be some real professional advantages to this particular 
degree . 

The Faculty and Educational Policy Committee also 
recommended the adoption of proposed new courses as detailed in 
Document 67-062. The Provost will, in the future, supply a listing 
yearly to the Board showing added, modified, or discontinued courses

the University of Massachusetts faculty as Dean of Education. The 
Chairman expressed his enthusiastic endorsement adding that Pro- 
fessor Allen undoubtedly would make an enormous contribution to 
the University. 

President Lederle and Chairman Troy met with the Boston 
Faculty and went over the Faculty Constitution. Agreement was 
achieved and recommendation made that the Board approve the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Boston Faculty Constitution. Motion was 
thereupon made, seconded, and it was

Dean Soutter was invited to comment on the current status 
of the Medical School application for federal matching funds. The 
Board was advised that the application for federal funds has been 
fi%]?ed a site visit by federal officials was made on April 3. 
Another site visit planned for August 17 will explore the attitudes 
of certain groups in the city of Worcester, including the city 
manager ana such areas as the hospitals, cnamber of commerce, the 
meaical society and the general public. 

The Dean noted the visitation committee interest in the 
Graduate School and involvement of the school in the Medical School 
planning and program. Unqualified support has been extended by Dean 
Moore of the Graduate School. Federal funds will be required by 
July 1968. 

The effect of the Vietnam war upon the economy and the 
budgetary provisions for the school was discussed. The Dean stated 
that, although adequate provisions were in the budget for funding, 
the availability of funds would be affected by the conflict. 

President Lederle said a meeting with Senator Kennedy 
and Congressman Conte is planned within the month to consider uni- 
versity needs with particular emphasis on the Medical School. 

President Lederle advised the Board that since last acting 
on the matter of an appropriate bargaining unit for the University 
non-professional employees, there has been a change in regulations 
from Boston. The effect is that previous procedures for determina- 
tion of an employee unit (see minutes of 11/21/66) are now void. 
The appropriate bargaining unit(s) are now to be determined by 
mutual agreement, or failing mutual agreement, by a labor election. 
Petitions have been received from two groups. The President asked 
Business Manager Grady to explain the current situation. Mr. Grady 
described the two organizations (MSEA and Local #1776 - AFL-CIO) 
and their differing viewpoints. The request of the Local #1776 is 
to establish the janitors as a separate bargaining unit. The re- 
quest of the MSEA is to establish as a bargaining unit all non- 
professional employees. There has been an open letter to the press, 
a demonstration and a visit to the Office of the President. 

In the absence of a designated bargaining unit, Trustee 
Solomon cautioned against maintaining an "open door" policy to all 
groups for discussion of any grievance. He felt that discussions 
might be in violation of law. Acting Chairman Healey restated his 
hope that the employees would consult with members of the adminis- 
tration prior to going to the press with their grievances. 



and it was 



After considerable discussion, motion was made, seconded 



VOTED ; That the Executive Committee proceed to hold 

informal meetings with any interested employee 
group, providing that such discussions are 
cleared by the Attorney General as legal and 
appropriate .

President Lederle noted with regret that this would be the 
last meeting of the Board which Trustee Solomon would attend due to 
his resignation as Commissioner of Public Health. The President 
commented that Dr. Solomon's experience had been especially helpful 
to the Board. His great contribution and dedication was commended. 

Trustee Solomon expressed admiration for his fellow Board 
members and commented on their generous devotion to their responsi- 
bilities . 

A motion was made, seconded, and it was 

RESOLVED: To record the appreciation of the Board 
of Trustees of the University of Massa- 
chusetts for the great contribution 
made to the University by Dr. Harry C. 
Solomon as a distinguished and highly 
respected member of the Board of Trustees 
since October 1962 and to extend every 
good wish to him upon the occasion of his 
retirement . 

Chairman Haigis then presented the report of the Committee 
on Buildings and Grounds. He advised the Board the plans for the 
Library at the Amherst campus had been thoroughly reviewed at a 
meeting held May 26 in Boston. After discussion, motion was made, 
seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the preliminary plans for the 

Library as prepared by Edward Durrell Stone, 
architect, subject to further review of the 
material on the exterior facade of the build- 
ing. 

Due to the significance of the building, consideration 
is being given to use of limestone on the exterior facade in spite 
of the additional cost. A rendering in limestone and one in brick 
will be made. 

Chairman Haigis referred to the request for exterior light- 
ing at the Southwest Complex. The time is propitious, according to 
the Building Authority, to permit completion of this project before 
Labor Day. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To request the University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority to install exterior 
lighting at the Southwest Dormitory 
Complex- area. 

A small parcel of land on the northwest corner of the 
campus was discussed including the provision permitting current 
owners to pump water from the creek thereon. It was noted this 
would permit tying two parcels together on the west side. After 
discussion, motion was made, seconded, and it was

time to time for the purpose of pump- 
ing irrigation water from the creek 
located thereon. 

The Chairman noted the proposed acquisition of property 
offered by Miss Mclntire on an exchange basis had been resolved; 
the negotiations are continuing on the basis of an unrestricted 
deed. 

The UM/Boston site continues to receive intensive con- 
sideration. Progress is being made; available sites are being re- 
viewed and Sasaki, Dawson and DeMay Associates have been requested 
to prepare reviews of Columbia Point, among others, using the 
criteria already established. A further report will be presented 
as soon as possible. It is still hoped that the July site selection 
date projected earlier may still be met. 

Chancellor Ryan added that consideration will continue to 
be extended to suggestions of any reasonable site, and this policy 
will continue until final selection is agreed upon.

Trustee Gordon queried whether progress continues on co- 
operation with the Amherst Fire Department in the area of exploring 
fire protection problems. Treasurer Johnson affirmed that progress 
is being made. Relationships are amicable. The purchase of an 
additional fire truck for use by the town depends on legislative 
appropriation and has been recommended by the Governor. A consultant 
has not been secured as anticipated, but it is expected that a 
recommendation will be submitted shortly. 

Trustee Gordon suggested a meeting devoted to this subject 
in September. Treasurer Johnson agreed. 

Trustee Pumphret of the University Building Authority in- 
troduced to the meeting Messrs. Papichristou and Schneider of the 
Breuer Office and Mr. Goldings, attorney for the University Building 
Authority. 

Mr. Papichristou reported that plans for the Campus Center

ings are 96% complete. It is expected that drawings will be entirely 
finished by Tuesday, June 6, and ready for release to bidders. 
Specifications are complete. These will be submitted to the 
Treasurer's Office. 

Treasurer Johnson spoke of the splendid cooperation of the 
group in meeting the tight schedule for the project in order to com- 
plete the construction of the Campus Center by the fall of 1968. 

There was discussion as to general progress on these con- 
tracts and the schedule. It is anticipated the buildings will be 
completed by November 1968, with a construction schedule of sixteen 
months .

Trustee Gordon advised the Board that honors were about 
to be bestowed on fellow board member General Maginnis: honorary 
citizenship in the French City of Carentan; also the award of a 
silver medal from the City of Mons, Belgium - both awards in 
recognition of the General* s distinguished service overseas during 
World War II. 

The Board applauded this recognition of distinguished ser- 
vice and it .was

Maginnis, University Trustee, in considera- 
tion of his having been accorded citations 
for distinguished service during World War 
II by the French City of Carentan and the 
City of Mons, Belgium. 

President Lederle explained the proposed Poultry Disease 
Control Program. A descriptive report had been supplied to the mem- 
bers of the Board in advance of the meeting. The President noted 
that assuming responsibility for this program as requested would 
create additional expense for the University of $24,367: ($14,4-67 
reassignment of personnel; $9,900 additional personnel). It was 
pointed out that the University Poultry Disease Laboratory is the 
only laboratory in Massachusetts authorized by the Legislature to 
conduct poultry disease tests. Availability of this program is 
essential to the future progress and competitive position of the 
Massachusetts poultry breeding industry in national and international 
trade. In accord with discussion, motion was made, seconded and it 
was 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To authorize the Poultry Disease Testing 

Laboratory of the Department of Veterinary

fee of ten cents (IOjO per sample will be 
charged . 

The value of an early informal conference for members of 
the Board to focus upon some current problems was emphasized by 
Trustee Gordon. President Lederle concurred. It was left that the 
Secretary would look into possible sites for such a conference and 
determine acceptable dates in mid-July or August for such a meeting 
and communicate with the Board of Trustees. 

The meeting was adjourned at 12:10 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board being present and act- 
ing throughout, the meeting was called to order by the Chairman at 
2:00 p.m. 

The minutes of the previous meeting having been supplied 
to the members and review having been made, it was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
the Board of Trustees of June 3, 1967. 

The Chairman called upon the President for comments. 

President Lederle advised the meeting of the outcome of 
the legal action which had been instituted by Mr. Montgomery of the 
Library staff. Judgment has been made in favor of the University 
Trustees. The action of the Board in reorganizing the Library and 
creating the position of Director of University Libraries has been 
sustained. The University is not under obligation to appoint Mr. 
Montgomery to this post. 

The President briefly commented on legislation. The Edu- 
cational TV Bill has been referred to study. He stated it may be 
possible to revive it in the event the appropriate committees are 
able to fund it. 

President Lederle informed the Board the Medical School 
Salary Relief Bill is still alive. Hopefully, at the appropriate 
time, its provisions can be made effective. There is great need 
for this bill in order to insure highest quality staff for che 
School.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



The sponsored research bill, the President said, has been 
referred to the Senate Counsel. Due to a constitutional question 
as to its legality, lawyers are currently working on it. 

Chancellor Ryan, at the invitation of the President, ad- 
vised that the University at Boston has contracted for an Upward 
Bound program. Instruction begins July 5. The students and staff 
will be in a residential situation in a college in the Boston area 
for one week and will not be housed at the University's facilities 
at Arlington Street for that period. 

Vice Chairman Healey submitted the Executive Committee re- 
port. He stated that the Executive Committee recommends approval 
of the Operating Budget (State and Trust Fund Budgets) as circu- 
lated in Document 67-081. However, some of the items are inadequate 
and the appropriate University officials are instructed to work witt 
the executive and legislative departments of the Commonwealth with 
a view to restoring as much of the original request as is possible 
in the supplemental budget. 

Motion was thereupon made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the State Fund and 
Trust Funds Operating Budgets for 1968 as 
detailed in Document 67-081. 

Chairman Healey next advised the Board that the Executive 
Committee had met with the two employee groups of the University. 
He explained the problem of recommending what the proper bargaining 
unit should be in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 149, 
Section 178f of the General Laws under the new procedures and 
changes in regulations issued by the Commonwealth. In 1966, the 
Trustees had indicated approval of a unit, based on the then exist- 
ing regulations. The position at that time was to designate as the 
appropriate unit for bargaining purposes a single unit consisting 
of "all non-professional employees within 15 miles of Amherst." 
The two groups (MSEA and AFL-CIO Local 1776) presented their 
positions. The MSEA proposed one employee group to represent all 
employees (one unit). Local 1776 proposed, in effect, three units, 
to represent (1) janitorial employees (2) security personnel at 
Amherst and (3) a single unit consisting of all non-professional 
personnel at UM in Boston. 

Trustee Healey said the committee had looked at the nei 
regulations and feel that, although some changes were mp^- . b " 
substantive issues are the same as those which came frc 
in 1966-. The committee also felt that UM at Boston should : con- 
sidered as a single unit; r- 'ever, it is not yet ready to present 
this to the Board. T^e committee felt, insofar as Amherst is con- 
cerned, that the initial position of the Board should be reaffirmed, 
In all probability the result will be a conference called by the 
Director of Personnel and Standardization. This issue is headed 
toward a dispute as to what, the appropriate bargaining unit ought 

to be. After discussion, motion was made, seconded, and it was

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



VOTED : To approve for collective bargaining pur- 
poses under the applicable statute and regu- 
lations, an all-inclusive unit of all Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts non-professional 
employees working at Amherst or within 15 
miles of the Amherst campus, and that the 
administration be authorized to implement 
this recommendation by taking whatever 
steps are necessary or appropriate under 
the applicable statute and regulations. 

The Vice Chairman asked Treasurer Johnson to describe the 
background on the proposed new fee policy for graduate students. 

Treasurer Johnson noted that the Graduate School students 
are billed on a credit hour basis rather than a fixed sum basis. 
In the past, fees for Student Union, Health Service and the identi- 
fication card were billed on a flat basis. Many students are adults 
who come to the campus for one course. Such persons do not use the 
facilities to as great an extent as regular undergraduate students. 
It is recommended, therefore, that these fees be brought into line. 



it was 



There was discussion and motion was made, seconded, and 



VOTED : Effective with the fall semester 1968 

Graduate Students shall pay a General Fee 
consisting of the Student Union Fee, the 
Health Service Fee and Identification Card 
Fee (but excluding the Commencement Fee) 
on a credit hour basis up through a total 
of ten credit hours. A fee of $5.00 per 
credit hour shall be assessed all students 
for each semester and a fee of $2.50 per 

credit hour shall be assessed for each 
summer session. Any student registered 
for thesis shall pay a fee of $50.00 re- 
gardless of the number of credits for which 
he is registered. Holders of fellowships 
and assistantships who receive a waiver of 
tuition do not thereby receive a waiver of 
fees. Each student pays his own fees unless 
special arrangements are approved by the 
Dean of the Graduate School. 

It was noted that students required to eat on campus 
(Freshmen through Juniors) pay for meals on the basis of $2„75 per 
day for a five day week. Saturday and Sunday meal tickets in the 
past have been made available at a lower rate. The weekend cost of 
operating Dining Halls makes for inefficient operation if the fees 
are out of line. It is proposed to bring the weekend charges up to 
exactly the same level as for any other day of the week. 



2961 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To increase the daily meal rate for the 

dining halls for three meals on Saturday and 
three meals on Sunday to the same rate as 
charged for the other days of the week: 
$2.75 a day, effective in September, 1967. 

Chairman Boyden called for the report of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy. 

Chairman Troy presented the report. A proposal to offer 
a Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degree in Astronomy 
was described. The demand for highly trained men in Astronomy has 
been quickened by the national need, the Chairman said. The 
quality of work depends on the faculty and this depends on whether 
we have the Ph.D. If we do adopt this program, it is believed that 
grants for equipment and facilities would become available. The 
committee recommends the approval of the proposed program. On 
motion thereupon made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the proposal to offer the 
Master of. Science and the Doctor of 
Philosophy degrees in Astronomy as 
described in Document 67-072, which 
document is herewith attached to and 
made a part of these minutes. 

Chairman Troy informed the Board of Dr. Robert Gluck- 
stern's appearance before the committee with reference to the in- 
terest of the Cambridge Radio Observatory Committee (CAMROC) in 
having the University participate in its programs and join the 
group. CAMROC is a corporation devoted to research, with its major 
interest radio astronomy. The aim is to get federal funds to 
finance its programs, currently the New England Radio-Radar Tele- 
scope. On motion duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To join CAMROC (Cambridge Radio Obser- 
vatory Committee) with the attendant 
responsibilities and privileges. 

Chairman Troy described the request of the Department of 
Electrical Engineering, for approval of a Ph.D. program. He said 
the basis was sound. The present faculty is competent to present 
a quality program. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a Ph.D. 
program in the Department of Electrical 
Engineering as detailed in Document 
67-073, which document is herewith 
attached to and made a part of these 
minutes.

Next there was presented a proposal for a Master of Science 
program in Marine Science (Document 67-074) . Chairman Troy stated 
there were no new courses encompassed in this program; the courses 
were already established. He pointed out that Massachusetts is 
third among the fifty states, in the fisheries industry. It is, 
therefore, most desirable to provide such a program. There may be 
federal monies available. He noted there may be a need in the 
future for special research space. On motion made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : To approve the interdisciplinary program 
leading to the Master of Science degree 
in Marine Science as detailed in Document 
67-074, which document is herewith 
attached to and made a part of these 
minutes . 

Dr. Westhead, Acting Head of the Department of Bio- 
chemistry, appeared before the Faculty and Educational Policy 
Committee to introduce a proposal for an undergraduate major in 
this department. Chairman Troy briefly outlined the advantages of 
such a program so that students could concentrate in this area as 
a major. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To adopt the proposal for an undergraduate 
major in Biochemistry as outlined in Docu- 
ment 67-075, which document is herewith 
attached to and made a part of these minutes. 

Chairman Troy described the proposed course changes and 
additions designed to broaden the Department of Germanic Languages 
and Literatures. He stated that under this plan Danish would be 
added next year. If the response warrants it, other related 
languages and subjects would be offered in succeeding years: Dutch 
and Swedish, for example. Motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To adopt the master plan for reorganization 

of the Graduate program in Germanic Languages 
and Literatures as presented in Document 
67-076, which document is herewith attached 
to and made a part of these minutes. 

The amendments proposed by the Faculty Senate to their 
constitution were submitted, (Document 67-077). The four changes 
achieve the following: (1) arrange for the Athletic Council to keep 
the outgoing chairman on for a year following expiration of his term 
if his chairmanship and term expire simultaneously, (2) provide for 
inclusion of members of the professional library staff as members 
of the Faculty Senate, (3) allows the committee on committees to 
recommend temporary replacement as necessary to Senate committees 
during the summer, (4) includes the Director of University Libraries 
as a member of the Senate. Motion was duly made, seconded, and it 
was 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the proposed amend- 
ments to the constitution of the Faculty 
Senate as detailed in Document 67-077, 
which document is herewith attached to and 
made a part of these minutes. 

A proposal from Dean Wagner from the Art Department for 
approval of a curriculum which would lead to a Bachelor of Fine 
Arts degree was described by Chairman Troy. On motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the proposed program leading 
to a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art 
and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Educa- 
tion as described in Document 67-068, 
which document is herewith attached to 
and made a part of these minutes. 

Chairman Troy informed the Board that 17 departments have 
asked for new courses, totaling 45. Many of these offerings are in 
departments which are relatively new, such as Computer Science; or 
in departments which have gone through change with new type of 
emphasis. Some courses have become immensely popular: Linguistics, 
anthropology, etc. All of the proposed new courses have been 
cleared by appropriate committees. The Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy recommends their adoption. Motion was thereupon 
made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the new courses as listed in 
Document 67-079, which document is here- 
with attached to and made a part of these 
minutes . 

Provost Tippo stated that a yearly report will be pre- 
pared to indicate how many courses are dropped, how many added, 
what are available. The report will present the current, overall 
picture. 

Chairman Troy emphasized that while the committee has its 
normal skeptism of any faculty request in the final analysis, they 
rely on the faculty for no one can match their specialized 
knowledge. 

Chairman Troy described the Center for International 
Agricultural Studies program as submitted to his committee by the 
College of Agriculture. He stated money for this may come from the 
federal government which is expected to provide funds for the Inter 1 
national Education Act of 1966; however, no funds have been pro- 
vided yet. This matter is presented at this time simply as in- 
formative background on what may become a possible future proposal. 

The discussion advanced to the Dean of Admissions' pro- 
posed modification of entrance requirements in unusual cases 

(Faculty Senate Document 67-047) . Trustee Troy pointed out that

this policy is pursued at MIT, Amherst College, etc. and appears to 
work well. In essence, the modifications provide that the subjects 
required for admission should be considered as strongly recommended 
rather than mandatory. The plan is intended to provide greater 
flexibility in the admission of bright students with special 
problems: handicapped students, late developers, etc. For such 
students, the formal requirements could be waived in certain in- 
stances. The plan has been approved by the Faculty Senate for 3% 
of the freshman class. 

President Lederle pointed out that the University has 
always given personal attention to admission of its students. We 
make a special effort to encourage negro and other underprivileged 
students to apply for admission. Faculty members have gone through- 
out the state at their own expense to seek out such students. 

Chairman Boyden paid tribute to the efficiency of the ad- 
missions system of the University and the dedication of its staff 
members. On motion thereupon made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To modify the University policy on sub- 
ject requirements as detailed in Faculty 
Senate Document 67-047, as amended by the 
Faculty Senate, to limit cases to 3% of 
the freshman class. 

Chairman Boyden congratulated Trustee Troy on the ex- 
cellence of his committee's report. 

The report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds was 
submitted by Chairman Haigis. He stated that the committee hoped 
to have final site analyses in July and to finalize the site se- 
lection for UM at Boston at a special meeting of the Board of 
Trustees in July or August. Mr. Haigis added that we have students 
on hand at present, however, and will have more students before the 
site is obtained. Therefore, provision must be made to educate 
them and to arrange for temporary space for their accommodation. 
Accordingly fifteen bids on space have been secured by the State 
Superintendent of Buildings as represented by the following votes, 
which Mr. Haigis therewith read in full, stating the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds recommends them for adoption by the Board. 

Motion was thereupon made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To negotiate for lease of the following space: 
130 Columbus Ave., Kevlan Realty, Alternate #1, 
41,700 sq. ft., $4.295/sq.ft., $179,120 annual 
rent for Locker Storage and Library use. 

It was also

$3.90 sq.ft., $585,000 annual rent (ex- 
cluding electricity) for Classroom, Study 
area, Cafeteria, Student Lounge, Bookstore, 
Student Activities and Student Affairs, 
and Faculty Offices. 

In accordance with these votes, the committee recommends 
to the Board of Trustees that a supplemental budget request in the 
amount of $385,000 be made to cover the cost of the additional 
rental of space for UM at Boston and that the President be 
authorized to arrange interim funds to permit execution of the 
lease agreement. 

Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To submit a supplemental budget request 
to the Governor and the Legislature to 
cover the cost of the rental of additional 
space for UM at Boston in the amount of 
$385,000 and to authorize the President 
to arrange interim funding to permit 
execution of the lease agreement. 

Chairman Haigis described the need for temporary space 
until other temporary space is available and motion was according- 
ly made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer to negotiate 
appropriate contracts to extend the use 
of space in the Salada Building until 
other space is available, and to take 
appropriate action to secure office space 
for the Medical School. 

The Committee on Buildings and Grounds recommended the 
acquisition of two pieces of property for the Amherst campus. The 
first was described as 2.68 acres, owned by George and Regina 
Gizienski, adjacent to Highway #116, and required for future de- 
velopments of the Northwest Dormitory Complex. 

Motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That in accordance with Chapter 590, Acts 
of 1966, Item 8067-69, and other acts, 
authorizing the Trustees of the University 
to acquire land, or land with buildings 
thereon, by purchase or by eminent domain 
under Chapter 79 of the General Laws, for 
the further development of the University; 
independent appraisals of the value of the 
land and buildings, if any, having been

Chairman Haigis commented on the contributions of Murray 
D. Lincoln, Class of 1914, to the University over the span of 50 
years. He submitted the recommendation of the committee that the 
new Campus Center be named the Murray Lincoln Campus Center in 
honor of this distinguished alumnus, adding that this is exactly 
the kind of building Murray Lincoln would have appreciated having 
named for him. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That the new Campus Center be named The 
Murray Lincoln Campus Center in honor of 
this late, distinguished alumnus of the 
University. 

The plans for the research building at Wareham were con- 
sidered by the committee and recommended to the Board of Trustees, 
after plans and specifications were thoroughly discussed by the 
members of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. Motion was 
thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the plans and specifications 
for the Experimental Biology Laboratory 
at Wareham and to award the contract for 
construction to the lowest bidder, Ciolek 
Construction Company, Inc. of South Hadley 
Falls, Massachusetts, in the amount of 
$199,530, this sum to be gained from 
$100,000 state capital outlay funds and 
$99,530 from federal funds. 

Chairman Boyden called for President Lederle's further 
reports and recommendations. 

President Lederle stated that the Personnel Actions had 
been circulated, including the establishment of two position 
classifications. The Provost drew attention to two outstanding 
appointments: Professor William A. Nash, Professor, UM, Mechani- 
cal Engineering, formerly of the University of Florida and Professoi 
Charles H. Page, Professor, UM, Sociology and Anthropology, formerl} 
Professor of Sociology and Provost, University of California at 
Santa Cruz. In addition, a Head Mistress of the Girls School in 
Uganda, Miss Phyllis J. Roop, has been appointed. On motion made 
and Seconded, it was

of the Board of Trustees and such classi- 
fication shall not be designated by any job 
group number or grade. 

The report of the representative to the Board of Higher 
Education was given by Trustee Healey. He stated the Board is moving 
ahead in a number of directions. The Chancellor has been appointed 
and is active. Appointment of staff is still lacking three basic 
directors: the first in academic planning; the second in Budget 
and Facilities planning and the third in Inter-Agency Relations. 
The only position presently authorized is that of Vice Chancellor. 
Presumably, the other positions will be added in the supplemental 
budget. Trustee Healey stated the Board has worked very hard and 
is about to get underway three major studies in separate areas. 
These are: (1) metro-area planning, i.e., where the students are; 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

where they intend to go; what kind of public education ought to be 
provided in the greater Boston area. (This assumes existence of a 
strong UM at Boston) . (2) Problem of nursing and education; 
(3) scholarship study for Higher Education in the Commonwealth. 

Trustee Gordon reported on the enthusiastic and favorable 
comments following the lacrosse competition held on campus. He 
said the Athletic Department and particularly Coach Garber and all 
those cooperating with him that weekend are to be highly compli- 
mented for the favorable reaction of the visitors to the campus. 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:15 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Chairman at 2:00 p.m. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
the Board of Trustees of June 30, 1967. 

The President commented briefly on a clipping from the 
Boston Globe of August 13, which had been circulated to the Board. 
This indicated that the University is attracting superior faculty 
as evidenced by the result of a recent poll conducted by the Woodrow 
Wilson National Fellowship Foundation of Princeton, New Jersey 
which lists the University of Massachusetts third among the top ten, 
immediately after Harvard and M.I.T. He said it is gratifying to 
note how many prestige teachers are attracted to our campus due to 
the fine support we have been getting on faculty salaries from the 
Legislature, as well as to the general attractions of New England 
living. Continuance of legislative support will insure development 
of the University into one of the great institutions of higher 
learning in the nation. 

President Lederle also emphasized the need for Federal 
support. He recounted a recent luncheon meeting with the Massachu- 
setts Congressional delegation in Washington, sponsored by Repre- 
sentative Silvio Conte and Senator Edward Kennedy. The purpose of 
the meeting was to coordinate federal efforts with the University's 
improvement program. This supplied an opportunity for the Presi- 
dent and Dean Redfern to discuss the University and its need for 
future support through matching funds for the Medical School, 
library funds and various other forms of federal aid.

Chairman Troy presented the report of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy. He stated the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston has now completed two full years. This fall the 
upper division program will get underway. In general this program 
will parallel major requirements at the Amherst campus. The Chair- 
man reported there are now 855 preregistered students in the upper 
class and it is anticipated there will be 150 transfer students. 

Chairman Troy stated there were 136 courses offered last 
year. With new programs added, there will be 250 during the coming 
academic year. Although certain courses will not be offered this 
year, they are requested now so that students may anticipate 
schedules for the senior year. 

Of the 855 preregistered students, 250 plan to major in 
humanities; 385 in the social sciences; 120 in the natural sciences 
100 in mathematics. He noted that 150 of these students indicate 
interest in teaching. 

The Teacher Certification Program requires a minimum of 
12 hours teacher training, which will be met in regularly offered 
courses. It is hoped to get a coordinator for this program who 
will emphasize placement. In the meantime, the program is directed 
by a qualified member of the English Department. 

Chairman Troy said when the Boston campus got underway, 
it established a department of Social Relations. Now it is felt 
desirable to reorganize along the more traditional lines of a 
separate Department of Psychology and a separate Department of 
Sociology-Anthropology. Discussion of this proposal led into the 
broad problems of administration inevitably brought on by growth. 
Divisional structure will remain as a coordinating agent among re- 
lated departments, although a number of areas will be established 
as departments. This has the effect of decentralization of the work 
load. At a later time the Chancellor will supply specific 
recommendations on these matters. 

Upon the recommendation of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Departmental major require- 
ments, new courses and other organizational 
changes proposed for 1967-68 for the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at Boston as de- 
tailed in Documents T68-003, T68-004 and 
T68-005, which documents are hereby attached 
to and made a part of these minutes. 

Chairman Troy commented upon the breadth of experience 
and academic attainments of the faculty of the University at Boston 
stating this should contribute to a beneficial exchange of ideas 
and procedures and aid University growth.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Haigis of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
reported on the acquisition of land for the Medical School in 
Worcester. He stated that three independent appraisals had been 
received, as prescribed by law, on the Shaw Building, which may be 
used to house faculty and provide storage space during the con- 
struction period of the Medical School. The building is air con- 
ditioned and has 44,000 square gross feet of space. Total land 
area is 117,037 square feet. After discussion and upon recommenda- 
tion of the committee, motion was made, seconded, and it was then 

VOTED : In accordance with Chapter 276 Item 
8067-98 of the Acts of 1967, and all 
other acts, authorizing the Trustees 
of the University to acquire land, or 
land with buildings thereon, by pur- 
chase or by eminent domain under 
Chapter 79 of the General Laws, for 
the development of the University of 
Massachusetts Medical School in the 
City of Worcester; independent 
appraisals having been made by quali- 
fied disinterested appraisers and 
filed with Kenneth W. Johnson, 
Treasurer; the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity purchase or take by eminent do- 
main in fee, a parcel of land now or 
formerly the Pinney Realty Corporation 
property as shown on a plan entitled 
"Land in Worcester (Worcester Co.) 
Mass." Surveyed by Gordon E. Ainsworth 
& Associates, Inc., May 18, 1967; and 
that the purchase price for said 
property be $500,000. 

Dean Soutter introduced members of the architectural 
firms for the Medical School Building. Mr. Quinlan of Campbell, 
Aldrich & Nulty then described by means of plans and projected 
slides the criteria which led to the design philosophy of the 
Medical School Building. Basically this is a "T" building. There 
are two wings, one for basic sciences and the other for clinical 
sciences. A third wing extends to include laboratories and lecture 
halls on floors stacked one above the other. 

Mr. Quinlan described the four lecture halls, each of 
which has access to two floors. There will be 360 student carrels 
as part of the library plan. The building is basically limestone. 
The first floor will be devoted to administration and non-student 
facilities; with the animal quarters in the basement. Points of 
entrance and egress were noted, including truck access areas for 
delivery of food. 

Dean Soutter expressed satisfaction with the basic 
pattern, noting the practicality of the wings for the possible 
future addition of four floors. He stated the architects have done 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

a good job in taking a building which basically must be square be- 
cause of the internal needs, and making it attractive by the addi- 
tion of other buildings, such as the free standing library. 

Upon the recommendation of the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds, motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the preliminary plans for the 
Medical School as corrected with notation 
thereon as presented and drawn by the 
architectural firms of Campbell, Aldrich 
and Nulty; Ritchie Associates and Ellerbe 
Associates. 

Chairman Haigis informed the Board of the factors in- 
fluencing the committee recommendation that a gas-oil combination 
be selected as the energy source for the Medical School and Hospital, 
complex. He noted there will be a savings of about $150,000 a year 
to the Commonwealth, as compared to other forms considered. Addi- 
tionally, in the event of a general power failure, the amount of 
reserve auxiliary equipment required to handle the emergency will 
be considerably less with oil-gas than with any other type of 
energy. 

It was thereupon moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve a combination gas -oil energy 
source for the Medical School-Hospital 
complex in Worcester, with steam as the 
source of heat. 

In accord with previous discussion and approval for de- 
molition of farm buildings on tie site of the Medical School in 
Worcester, motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED: To demolish the farm buildings on the 
Medical School site in Worcester as a 
part of the construction contract 
when site work begins in the summer 
of 1968. 

Chairman Haigis advised the Board that the Graduate Re- 
search Center, which will go out to bid this fall, is now about two 
million dollars over the original cost estimate. It is planned to 
make up the cost differential from the building equipment fund. 
Treasurer Johnson stated the plans are the same as presented in 
detail by the architect to the Trustees last winter. There is no 
change in the exterior appearance, except for location and size of 
a few vents.

adjacent to the Amherst campus, be acquired. It was noted that a 
prior offer, approved by the Board, had been declined by Mr. Winkler 
It is now proposed to offer the maximum allowable. This would be 
$82,500. On motion made and seconded, it was thereupon 

VOTED : In accordance with Chapter 590 Acts of 
1966 Item 8067-69, and other Acts 
authorizing the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity to acquire land, or land with

Chairman Haigis advised the Board that completion of the 
boulevard from the Southwest Residence hall area to North Pleasant 
Street infringes on property of the Baptist Church on North 
Pleasant Street (Parcel A as shown on a map provided to the 
Trustees) . The Baptist Church proposes to deed this parcel of land 
to the University in exchange for right of access across the 
University's parking lot to their own parking lot, adjacent to the 
church. 

Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To accept from The First Baptist Church 
of Amherst, a religious corporation duly 
established by law, a parcel of land in 
Amherst, Massachusetts, located on the 
westerly side of North Pleasant Street,

President Lederle informed the Board that the top floor 
of one of the buildings which the University at Boston had been 
authorized to acquire for use is not in fact presently available. 
It has, therefore, been necessary to acquire other space. 
Chancellor Ryan explained that satisfactory space has been found at 
no advance in cost. After brief discussion and upon motion made

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
the Acting Chairman. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees of August 14, 1967. 

President Lederle commented that the semester has started 
with substantially more students on campus than budgeted for in 
Amherst and Boston. As reported in daily newspapers recently, 
there is a "tripling" in shared accommodations due to this crowding, 
but this is expected to straighten itself out within a few weeks. 

The President referred to the Capital Outlay Program for 
the fiscal year 1968, copies of which had been supplied to the 
Board in advance of the meeting. He noted that the University's 
original request was for $23,605,000, the Governor's recommendation 
totalled $18,765,000 and the House (No. 5212) had passed 
$16,000,000. The President expressed great satisfaction that the 
crucially needed library project had been approved by the House. 
His hope now is that it will also be approved by the Senate. He 
expressed disappointment that there were no funds approved for 
planning purposes and said the administration will continue to 
work for this as enrollment hinges on it. The President said that 
the capital budget represents substantial state support and the 
University is grateful for it. He asked Dean Soutter to report on 
recent developments with the Medical School and the activities con- 
cerned with the effort to get as much matching money as possible 
from Washington. 

Dean Soutter described a site visit in Worcester held 
with a delegation from H.E.W. in Washington. This included a 
highly successful luncheon which gave opportunity for free dis- 
cussion and informal association between the Washington investi 
gative group and the local busings sihcmi who attended. The entire

visit went well and the group indicated satisfaction with the 
results. One question of utilization of space remains to be 
resolved. The Dean said this has been discussed with the BBC and 
architects and a solution for more efficient use of space has been 
arrived at. This will be communicated to the federal officials at 
the time of a visit to Washington planned by Dean Soutter for next 
week. 

The Dean said that recruitment of key faculty for the 
Medical School goes well. The administration is working with the 
architects and engineers to solve a number of different problems 
including disposal of trash and a standby electrical system for use 
in the event of power failure. He noted that these things take a 
good deal of time for discussion and planning. 

Dean Soutter said the project is on schedule: It is pro- 
posed to go out to bid on May 3, 1968 and start construction July 1. 
He noted this is somewhat ahead of what other medical schools have 
been able to do. 

The preliminary plans for the hospital are complete and 
will be submitted soon to the Board of Trustees. Dean Soutter also 
said five libraries have been acquired and are being processed in 
Amherst and will be sent to Worcester when suitable space is avail- 
able. Currently, negoitations are underway for acquisition of the 
Shaw Building for the purpose of housing the collection during the 
Medical School construction phase. 

The report of the Executive Committee having been 
supplied to the members of the Board prior to the meeting it was 
noted that no votes were required. However, discussion was held on 
the Campus Center and the problem encountered with the Building 
Authority ceiling, which it is expected will be raised from 60 to 
80 million dollars in the near future. In order to expedite com- 
pletion of contracts and initiation of work on this project, it was 
considered advisable to eliminate the garage temporarily from the 
previous authorizing vote of the Trustees. The garage is to be 
submitted separately for approval at a later date after legislation 
raising the ceiling for funding of new projects is passed. The 
need for ratification of the action of the Executive Committee was 
discussion. Motion was then made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That the action taken by the Executive Com- 
mittee at its meeting of August 31, 1967, 
respecting concurrence in the reduction in 
scope of the Eleventh Project of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts Building Authority, 
be and hereby is adopted and ratified as the 
action of the Trustees. 

Chairman Pumphret, reporting for the Finance Committee, 
advised that the committee had met and reviewed with members of the 
investment counseling firm (Standish, Ayer & Wood, Inc.) the 
Endowment Fund Portfolio. Discussion was held on recommendations 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

for investment of $64,000 of uninvested cash, as well as other 
changes in the present portfolio. This resulted in decisions to 
buy 50,000 bonds (Federal National Mortgage and Boston Edison) and 
to switch $75,000 U.S. Treasuries into Federal Agencies at an 
appropriate time. Other recommendations were adopted and left with 
Treasurer Johnson to put into effect. Acting Chairman Healey noted 
that he did not participate in the meeting of the Finance Committee 
nor in the recommendations for investment in Boston Edison. 

Chairman Pumphret said a brochure of the Faculty Club 
project (total cost $200,000) was supplied to the members of his 
committee. (See Document T68-010) . He said the Faculty Club re- 
quires assistance of $15,000 through temporary financing in order 
to get the project off the ground. The Faculty Club group expects 
to provide, by means of a fund raising drive, the balance of 
$185,000 in funds. It was noted that the buildings, when complete, 
will continue to be the property of the University and that the 
beneficial effects to the University are unquestionable, both in 
faculty goodwill and the tangible addition of property to the 
campus. Treasurer Johnson advised that no state funds are or will 
be involved. After discussion, it was felt that the details of 
this matter should be considered through the Finance Committee, in- 
cluding the legal aspects, and then submitted to the Board in final 
form. Chairman Pumphret said the project is considered to have 
tremendous merit. This matter will be resubmitted at a later 
meeting. 

President Lederle described the 1969 Operating Budget Re- 
quest, copies of which had been circulated. In view of a late 
mailing and the lack of opportunity, the Board had to review the 
content. The President suggested that the budget be reviewed at 
the convenience of the Trustees and comments and suggestions sent 
in for consideration by the Executive Committee. After discussion, 
motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To refer to the Executive Committee to review, 
and after approval of the Executive Committee 
to authorize the Budget Request to be sub- 
mitted by the University, with report to 
full Board at its next meeting. 

The President circulated the Personnel Actions together 
with a supplement on positions in Boston. He recommended approval. 
Motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the personnel actions 
as detailed in Document T68-009, together 
with supplement #1 of T68-009A, which 
document is herewith attached to and made

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject

or repealed by the Board of Trustees with 
respect to professional personnel under pro- 
visions of Chapter 75 of the General Laws

classification, salary range and descriptive 
job specification for each position to which 
a member of the professional staff is hereby

authority. 

Trustee Healey, as delegate to the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion, stated he had no report at this time. The Higher Education 
Board will meet September 15. In the meantime, the usual problems 
of staffing and approval of programs for other state institutions 
and private universities continues. 

President Lederle said, in accordance with statutory re- 
quirements, police officers for the University must be listed and 
submitted for Trustee approval. He submitted the listing, recom- 
mending the approval of same. 

There was discussion, including a query by Trustee 
Thompson as to what protection the University provides for police- 
men on duty in the highway so that they would receive the same 
protection as police in the town. Treasurer Johnson agreed to in- 
vestigate and advise the Trustees at a later date. On motion 
thereupon made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : In accordance with the provisions of Section 
32A of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as 
amended by Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962 
which provides in part "The Trustees may 
appoint as police officers persons in the 
employ of the University who in the enforce- 
ment of said rules and regulations (i.e. 
for the control, movement and parking of 
vehicles on the campus of the University 
and on other land of the University) and

The President said the administration had sent to each 
Trustee a copy of the proposed Manual of Non-Professional Personnel 
Policies. Opportunity for adequate study of this document has not 
been afforded, however. This matter has been under consideration 
by the administration for some time. It was reviewed by the 
Executive Committee last June. The manual is in effect a final 
draft of the proposal. Mr. Dolan of the MSEA is pressing for en- 
dorsement, hopefully today. There was wide discussion and it was 
the consensus that this matter should first receive the considera- 
tion of the Executive Committee. Trustee Thompson was invited to 
join the discussions. Acting Chairman Healey stated that all the 
Trustees share Mr. Dolan' s sense of urgency in this matter. The 
Board will get to it as soon as possible to resolve the basic 
guidelines for working with the non-professional employees. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To refer the Non-Professional Personnel 
Policies Manual to the Executive Com- 
mittee for consideration and recommenda- 
tion to the Board of Trustees. 

Mr. Austin Broadhurst, Counsel for the Building 
Authority, distributed copies of a Management and Services Agree- 
ment for Project 8 in the Southwest Residence Hall complex. He 
apologized that these were not submitted earlier. He stated that 
the document was exactly the same as that supplied to the Trustees 
for other residence hall projects in the Southwest complex.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
Chairman Boyden. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To go into Executive Session for the pur- 
pose of discussing individuals nominated 
as candidates for honorary degrees. 

After full discussion and upon motion made and seconded, 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : To come out of Executive Session for the 
purpose of carrying on with the agenda 
of the meeting. 

Vice Chairman Healey assumed the Chair, Chairman Boyden 
having left the meeting.

1967 and approve as submitted. 

Acting Chairman Healey invited President Lederle to 
address the meeting. The President briefly summarized the effect

funds for the Library were included. Although some other areas are 
not adequately provided for, the administration is grateful for the 
consideration of the Legislature. 

Acting Chairman Healey sard the report of the last meet- 
ing of the Executive Committee (October 16, 1967) had been dis- 
tributed to the entire Board of Trustees and there was no further 
comment to add. However, the matter of the award of honorary de- 
grees for commencement 1968 requires the consideration of the Board. 
Mr. Healey said this had been done in executive session, since it 
involves discussion of the personalities and reputation of indi- 
viduals. Further, it is a custom and tradition of American Uni- 
versities generally to hold such names confidential until released 
at the time the degree is awarded. The committee has performed the 
initial screening. The Executive Committee recommended that (1) 
those names without an asterisk on the list stay on the table, 
following customary procedure, until the next meeting of the Board; 
(2) that the Board move forward on the five names indicated by 
asterisk on the list of nominees. 

Motion was then made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To consider the listing of Honorary Degree 
Candidates (Document T68-019) ; and approve 
those indicated specifically designated 
thereon by asterisk, to permit early contact. 

After discussion, motion was made and it was seconded and 
then 

VOTED : To approve the Operations Budget Request 
for the Fiscal Year 1969, as detailed in 
Document T68-011, which document is here- 
with attached to and made a part of these 
minutes . 

The report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds was 
submitted by Chairman Haigis who said it encompassed primarily two 
points: (1) progress report on University of Massachusetts at 
Boston site, and (2) land takings. 

Chairman Haigis said the search for a site for the Univer- 
sity at Boston has been reviewed by the committee and Sasaki, Dawson 
DeMay Associates, Inc. The various sites had been equated against 
each other and it was decided to re-investigate suburban site possi- 
bilities since there was no concerted effort on the part of the 
Boston community (except in the case of the Governor Shirley site) , 
to encourage establishment of the University in Boston. The 
committee is not yet ready to go to the Governor or the legislative 
leadership with a proposed site. At present, the following possi- 
bilities are being considered:

Chairman Haigis next presented a recommendation of the 
committee for the acquisition of land at 63 Clark Street. 
Treasurer Johnson described the option in detail. A motion was 
made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : In accordance with Chapter 590, Acts of 
1966, Item 8067-69 and other Acts 
authorizing the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity to acquire land, or land with build- 
ings thereon, by purchase or by eminent 
domain under Chapter 79 of the General 
Laws, for the further development of the 
University; independent appraisals of the 
value of the land and buildings; if any, 
having been made by qualified disinterested 
appraisers and filed with Kenneth W. Johnson, 
Treasurer; that the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity purchase or take by eminent domain in 
fee, the property of H. Ruth Mclntire 
(supposed owner), consisting of 43,359 sq. 
ft. more or less, located in Amherst, Mass., 
at 63 Clark Street said parcel being that 
described as Parcels 2 and 3, Page 11B of 
the Amherst Town Atlas (1966) ; and that the 
purchase price for said property be Twenty- 
Six Thousand Five Hundred ($26,500) dollars. 

The Board was advised that Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay 
Associates, Inc. and Dean Pietro Belluschi had been appointed to 
work together as associates in designing the master plan for the 
University Boston campus. This will include: 
I. Site evaluation 
II. Review and evaluation of University Building Program 
III. Compilation of site data 
IV. Initial Master Plan Studies 
V. Development Initial Studies 
VI. Finalizing Master Plan Studies 
VII. Documentation 

A timing schedule of these phases in a logical and 
orderly manner has been set up.

Chairman Haigis next informed the Board of the recommenda- 
tion of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds that plans be de- 
veloped to house 1400 students at a site inside the women's north 
dormitory area. It was noted that this area was recommended by- 
Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates as being practical and compatible 
with the campus plan. The Treasurer explained the need for addi- 
tional housing for 1400 students by 1970. It is recommended that 
the University Building Authority be requested to develop study 
plans when the anticipated appropriate legislation has lifted the 
Authority's dollar ceiling. level. 



After discussion, a motion was made and seconded, and it 



was 



VOTED : To request the Building Authority archi- 
tect to develop study plans to house 1400 
students at the site shown as Plan A on 
file in the Office of the Treasurer (this 
being the area inside the women's north 
dormitory area) and to report back whether 
the site is architecturally feasible. 

Trustee Pumphret agreed to follow the progress of the 
pertinent legislation for the Building Authority to encourage early 
action on the foregoing request. 

The Chairman of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
then informed the Board of petitions received from local residents 
concerning the parking and traffic situation growing out of the 
campus construction and traffic re-routing program. He described th 
conferences and consultations held in an effort to arrive at a plan 
to alleviate the problem. Chairman Haigis said an emergency measure 
has been instituted within the campus and asked Treasurer Johnson 
to describe the plan in detail. 

The Treasurer said there has been considerable difficulty 
with circulation on campus since the new system was set up. The 
Town also has been disturbed by the change in the traffic pattern. 
Currently, in an effort to relieve the situation a cross-campus 
access has been opened up, (road through lot #1) thus relieving the 
pressures on the Fearing Street-Phillips Street area. The north 
end of campus is a serious problem because the streets are narrow 
and not adequate to take care of heavy traffic which is exceeding 
expectations. The Town Selectmen have asked that an emergency road 
be opened. This will require acquisition of the Dickinson property 
on which the University has secured an option. The Treasurer said 
two appraisals have been made and the sum specified in the option 
falls within these. Circumstances and conditions contained in the 
offer to sell are on file in the Office of the Treasurer. These 
conditions prohibit the removal of the buildings on the property 
and the complete use of the entire parcel untik July 1, 1970. In 
the meantime, a road to accomplish what is urgently needed can be 
routed through the land to provide relief for the traffic problem.

After discussion and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : In accordance with Chapter 590, Acts of 

1966, Item 8067-69, and other Acts authorizing 
the Trustees of the University to acquire land, 
or land with buildings thereon, by purchase or 
by eminent domain under Chapter 79 of the

the University; independent appraisals of the 
value of the land and buildings; if any, having 
been made by qualified disinterested appraisers 
and filed with Kenneth W. Johnson, Treasurer; 
that the Trustees of the University accept the 
offer of Edith M. Dickinson, dated October 20, 

1967, and filed with Kenneth W. Johnson, 
Treasurer, to sell the property of Edith M. 
Dickinson (supposed owner) , consisting of 1% 
acres more or less, located in Amherst, Mass., 
at 28 Farview Way said parcel being that 
described as Parcel 4, Page 8C of the Amherst

all the conditions contained in the offer to 
sell to the University, signed by Edith M. 
Dickinson on October 20, 1967, and on file 
with Kenneth W. Johnson, Treasurer. 

Chairman Haigis then submitted the recommendation of the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds for approval of the preliminary 
plans for the Faculty Club. Architects' sketches were displayed. 
He explained that because this building will be located on campus, 
the approval of the Trustees is required. Financing of the project 
is not involved in this approval. The Trustees expressed approba- 
tion and extended compliments to the architect. On motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the preliminary plans for the 

Faculty Club as drawn by architect Raymond 
W. Dyer. 

Chairman Haigis recommended acceptance of recently com- 
pleted buildings on campus. He noted that the committee, at its 
recent meeting, toured the campus and had inspected the buildings 
now presented for acceptance.

The Treasurer described in detail the extent and 
direction of the roads and areas (from Stadium - University Drive - 
up Amity Street and return to campus to Sunset Avenue) . The 
pedestrian tunnel is included. Installation of street lights, 
though not complete, is progressing satisfactorily. 

Preliminary plans for the boiler plant expansion were 
discussed. Treasurer Johnson explained this is primarily boiler 
equipment and extending the power house to the west to provide the 
additional capacity. On motion then made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve preliminary plans for the new 

boiler plant expansion to the power house - 
Project U-63-7. 

Chairman Haigis next submitted the committee's recommenda- 
tion for acceptance of preliminary plans for the parking garage. 
He stated the Building Authority and the committee had viewed the 
plans and approved them. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and 
it was 

VOTED : To accept preliminary plans for the parking 
garage as submitted by the University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority.

Chairman Haigis then submitted a recommendation that the 
name of the Central Storage Building be established as The Physical 
Plant Building, due to the nature and usage of this facility. On 
motion made and seconded, it was then 

VOTED : To name the Central Storage Building THE 
PHYSICAL PLANT BUILDING. 

Treasurer Johnson reminded the Board of the vote on 
August 14, 1967, to deed a small parcel of land at the corner of 
the Newman Center to the Newman Center of Amherst, Inc. (p. 2977). 
The deed was thereupon circulated for signatures of the Trustees. 

The signatures were notarized by John C. Marchant, Notary 

Trustee Pumphret posed the question as to whether any 
group of citizens in the Boston urban area had indicated interest 
in having the University establish its campus near or adjacent to 
their particular location. Chairman Healey commented that the 
Board of Higher Education is making a study in the metropolitan 
area which will be very meaningful. In view of the fact the number 
of children of college age is growing constantly and schools which 
were once essentially commuter colleges and universities in Boston 
already have started to become residential institutions (North- 
eastern, Boston University, etc. - all of whom are building dormi- 
tories) , the pressures in the metropolitan area continue to in- 
crease. Many Boston colleges and universities are becoming more 
national and international than they were 20 years ago. 

Chairman Lyons submitted the report of the Committee on 
Student Activities. 

He said that, as a result of the October 9 meeting, in 
which he had a two-hour informal session with a dozen students and 
faculty, the consensus seemed to be that things in the student life 
area appear to be going quite well. The Chairman noted that copies 
of the minutes had been supplied to the Board. He reviewed briefly 
the document "Major Findings and Implications of the 1967 Student 
Life Survey" (Document T68-014) and gave his reactions to a variety 
of subjects included in this survey. He noted that a student hand- 
book had been set up and copies supplied to the Trustees. He said 
discussion developed views on a number of subjects including the 
curfew and it was apparent that further revision on the curfew, as 
applied to Freshman women, might be a future subject for considera- 
tion. Chairman Lyons said the residence hall self-government pro- 
gram is developing, but somewhat unevenly. He noted that the new, 
younger residence hall counselors are well received. 

Special reference was made to the concern of the students 
over conditions for quiet study areas. Mr. Lyons observed that the 
Trustees had expressed concern last year over the amount of damage 
in the residence halls. He stated that the Treasurer now makes a 
direct billing for any damage to the student who is responsible.

In summary, he said, the climate of the session was heartening; 
relations seem to be excellent between students and the faculty. 

Trustee Troy mentioned that Professor Varley's article in 
the CHRISTIAN SCHOLAR is very readable and makes a good case for 
the residential college. The President stated at a recent coffee 
hour, held for one-semester students from New Mexico and Florida 
State, that the students were very enthusiastic and expressed in- 
terest in staying on permanently. 

Chairman Troy of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy gave the report of his committee. He described the proposal 
of the Dean of the Graduate School that a transcript seal should 
be supplied to facilitate preparation of transcripts rather than 
use, as has been the custom, the University Seal which is not 
always available. This request is seconded by the Stockbridge 
School and the University Registrar. After discussion, motion was 
made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve an "Official Transcript" seal 

for the Office of the Dean of the Graduate 
School, the Office of the Dean of Ad- 
missions and the Stockbridge School 
(Document T68-020) . 

Chairman Troy then submitted the recommendation of the 
committee that two proposed amendments to the Constitution of the 
Faculty Senate at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst 
(Document T68-021) be adopted. The first amendment will have the 
effect of providing representation of professional librarians in 
the Faculty Senate; the second will provide temporary replacements 
to committees which meet during the summer months. Motion was 
thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the two proposed amendments 
to the Constitution of the Faculty 
Senate as detailed in Document T68-021) . 

The Dean of the College of Agriculture has asked for a 
formal vote on a proposal approved in principle at the June meet- 
ing, with reference to the Center for International Agricultural 
Studies. This does not involve use of state funds. It is ex- 
pected that federal or foundation funds will finance the program. 
The Chairman stated approval of the Center only is requested; 
academic or other programs will be submitted for consideration at 
a later date. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of "A Center 
for International Agricultural Studies" 
in the College of Agriculture as discussed 
in the proposal which was presented to the 
Trustees on June 30, 1967. This action does 
not commit the Trustees or the University

Administration to provide financial support 
for the operation of the Center, nor does 
it constitute approval of a bachelor or 
graduate degree program in this field. 

Chairman Troy next described the Academic Organization 
Proposal for the University of Massachusetts at Boston. He noted 
the divisional structure, stating it was tentative and experimental 
He summarized the effect, stating that it parallels the Amherst 
organizational pattern basically. The purpose is to develop better 
rapport among the departments. Mr. Troy noted that the proposal 
conforms to the basic Trustee Personnel Policy as set forth on 
November 9, 1962 (See Document 63-50). 

Motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the temporary policy on division 

structure for the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston. (Document T68-022) 

It was also moved and seconded and

said there is an advisory committee to the Board of Higher Educatioi

dealing with these matters. Dean Moore of our Graduate School is 
chairman of the committee. Trustee Gordon expressed interest in 
the University's involvement aside from the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion. Provost Tippo said it is a very active committee, but the 
University, after approval of the master's program, has refrained 
from further deep involvement, due to the expense of such items as 
boats, docks and related property. 

President Lederle said this matter has been explored ad- 
ministratively and internally with the faculty at great length 
although it has not been reported to the Board. He emphasized that 
there is a large funding requirement, that the groundwork must be 
laid well. There must be dedicated faculty members; there must be 
a base, and the Nantucket property of the University is not suitable 
The President then asked Dean Spielman to speak io" 1 the subject. 

Dean Spielman said about two years ago President Lederle 
and Provost Tippo authorized him, conditional on federal funds, to 
initiate a program in fisheries from a food standpoint. He outlined 
the program to date, stating one employee works full time on Food 
Fisheries Technology, supported by the federal government. There is 
also an active program in marketing in process. The Dean felt that 
there are people in the Wareham-Cape Cod area who, along with 
private industry, would be willing to provide a site for the Uni- 
versity whenever we are ready to proceed. Trustee Gordon suggested 
supplying the Rutgers Report to the Faculty and Educational Policy 
Committee for discussion. 

The President said we have reviewed these things and are 
not prepared at this time to move ahead. There was general agree- 
ment that this is a matter for the Committee on Faculty and Educa- 
tional Policy to consider at a later date. 

Chairman Healey then turned the meeting over to President 
Lederle for matters on the Presidential Agenda. 

The President said the recommendations of the faculty for 
Graduate and Undergraduate degrees had been circulated to the 
committee (T68-017 and T68-018) and in accordance with recommenda- 
tion, motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the undergraduate de-

The President said the Board has been concerned about the 
adequacy of fire protection on campus and it seemed advisable at 
this time to have Treasurer Johnson give an up-to-date report. 
Treasurer Johnson then informed the meeting that in spite of the 
recent unfortunate controversy in the local press, many positive 
things are being done. He thereupon at length outlined for the 
Board all past and present fire protection and safety measures in 
effect on campus. (Document T68-023) The Treasurer emphasized 
that the University has always been vitally concerned with the fire 
protection and fire safety and has conducted all of its programs in 
strict conformance with Massachusetts building codes. He stated 
all buildings on campus have been inspected and approved for 
occupancy by the Commonwealth's Department of Public Safety and 
that safety programs of many years standing are in effect. New 
programs are constantly added as need arises. 

There was discussion, in the course of which it was stated 
the State Fire Marshal had made an official survey of conditions on 
campus. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To request the State Fire Marshal to 
apprise the Board of Trustees of his 
official findings on conditions on 
the campus of the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst. 

Acting Chairman Healey, the delegate to the Board of 
Higher Education, reported that after an extended period of negotia- 
tion, agreement has been reached on language for the new Building 
Authority legislation which extends to Building Authority projects 
the right of the Board of Higher Education to review and comment on 
such projects. He stated that he felt the bill would establish in 
Building Authority matters essentially the same kind of relation- 
ship with the Board of Higher Education under Chapter 572 as the 
University Trustees feel exists with respect to the regular capital 
outlay budget, i.e. review and comment on specific items, rather 
than approval of them, within the framework of an overall plan for 
higher education, the approval of which is reserved to the Board of 
Higher Education. 



The meeting was adjourned at 12 noon.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, in the absence of the Chairman, 
Vice Chairman Healey called the meeting to order at 2:00 p.m. 

The minutes of the previous meeting having been circu- 
lated and read, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To dispense with the reading of the minutes 
and to approve the minutes of the meeting 
of the Board of Trustees of October 21, 1967. 

The Chairman next called for the President's comments. 
President Lederle announced receipt of a letter from the Federal 
Government in Washington which indicated a temporary set back in 
connection with the application for funds for the Medical School 
basic science building. The President read to the Board a news 
release (Document T68-031) which had been prepared and copies 
distributed. 

President Lederle said this means that the University 
will resubmit the application in the light of certain suggestions 
and also relate this request to the request associated with the 
teaching hospital plans which are to be reviewed at today's 
meeting.

The President noted that in the light of the war in 
Vietnam and other factors, it is difficult to secure matching grant 
funds from Washington at the present time. He said that although 
the application was prepared with the benefit of the best of counsel 
and advice, some questions have been asked and the application must 
be reviewed in the light of these questions and then re-submitted. 
The President expressed confidence that, at the time of the re- 
submission, support will be forthcoming. 

President Lederle said that a similar problem has arisen 
in Amherst, where a request has been filed with HEW for approxi- 
mately $4,000,000 matching funds for the library, which will cost 
in the area of $14,800,000. There is some indication that there 
too, normal federal matching funds may not be available at this 
time. The President urged that the citizens of Massachusetts 
communicate with the members of Congress to make sure that money to 
support the civilian side of the economy is forthcoming. 

Chairman Healey then asked Dean Soutter to present the 
hospital plans to the Board. 

Dean Soutter directed the attention of the Trustees to 
the display models of the hospital and medical school, which had 
been set up on the conference table. He then introduced the repre- 
sentatives from Ritchie Associates, Campbell Aldrich & Nulty, 
Ellerbe & Company; Mr. James Hamilton, the University's hospital 
consultant, and Mr. John Stockwell, the hospital administrator. 

At the request of Dean Soutter, Mr. Stockwell described 
the plans for the hospital. 

Mr. Stockwell said the 400 bed teaching hospital will have 
a large ambulatory service, but the purpose is principally to be a 
referral hospital for residents of the Commonwealth. He noted that 
in excess of 35 people have consulted with the University group and 
expressed deep appreciation to them and to their institutions in the 
Boston area, which included the Massachusetts General Hospital, 
Beth Israel Hospital, the University Hospital, Tufts Medical Center, 
among others. 

Mr. Stockwell said all who were asked responded most 
helpfully. He noted that each was a specialist in his field and 
qualified to be of counsel to the program. He added that the 
hospital is programmed for 100,000 patients annually. Mr. Stockwell 
said the hospital serves only to implement the programs of the medi- 
cal school. Although it is difficult to forecast the future, he 
said, the criteria supplied to the architects included the necessity 
to provide for expansion and flexibility to adapt to the needs of 
the future faculty. 

Dean Soutter said the hospitals in Worcester are excellent 
there is no need for another hospital to serve the people there. 
The planned hospital is a "referral hospital", where it is expected 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



doctors will bring, or refer, patients from all over Massachusetts. 
It will be a hospital where new programs in patient care can be de- 
veloped and different methods of patient handling explored. The 
prime program, of course, will be to provide a base for students 
and faculty. 

Architect Donald Ritchie presented the plans for the 
Medical School-Teaching Hospital, one phase of the total medical 
school complex. Mr. Ritchie stated these plans were developed, as 
Mr. Stockwell had previously indicated, by many, many people. 
They are the result of excellent professional thinking. He said 
the plans were projected to meet the program that had been set up 
for the teaching hospital. 

The plan initially shows 400 beds. Everything is geared 
toward efficiency in handling patients and toward the teaching of 
medical students and other personnel. The plan will allow for ex- 
pansion as the school grows. It is estimated that four floors can 
be added to the top of the building, achieving a 600 bed capacity. 
When further expansion is required, the master plan recommends an 
additional, duplicate building. The plan is designed not only for 
immediate requirements, but also to anticipate presently unknown 
long-range future needs. 

Brochures detailing the floor plans and elevations were 
distributed to the committee. Slides were projected to show rela- 
tionships of the various departments within the envelope of the 
building. It was noted again that in planning the structure, the 
basic considerations were for the welfare of the patient and to 
provide facilities for teaching the medical student. Next came 
development of the patient rooms and related facilities. 

The building consists of four floors in the base and six 
floors plus a mechanical floor in the patient tower. Two of the 
stories are in the ground and relate basically to service facili- 
ties. Mr. Moyes of Ritchie Associates described for the Board the 
locations of the various areas. He then showed slides of the model 
"taken from a helicopter," to permit a comprehensive view of the 
project. 

Dean Soutter announced that Mr. Chase and Mr. Gediman of 
the Bureau of Building Construction were present, as was Mr. James 
Hamilton, the hospital consultant, and that they would be willing 
to answer any questions. There being none, Acting Chairman Healey 
thanked the group and they left the meeting. 

In the absence of the Chairman of the Buildings and 
Grounds Committee, Chairman Healey requested the Treasurer to sub- 
mit those items in the November 1 report of the committee which 
required action.

Constitution 
Changes 



Chairman Troy of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy then reported on the meeting of that committee held 
November 10. The first item, "Proposed Changes to the Constitution 
of the Faculty Senate," Chairman Troy said, included a proposal for 
sharper definition of the duties and powers of the Secretary of the 
Faculty Senate. 

Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That the Faculty Senate Constitution of the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst be 
amended as follows: 

1. Add 4 (b) : "4(b). The Secretary of the 
Senate shall be an ex officio member of 
the Senate with the power to vote." 

2. Renumber 4(b) thru 4(g) as 4(c) thru 4(h). 

3. Amend 6(c) so that it shall read : "6(c). 
The President of the University shall be 
the President of the Senate and shall 
normally preside at its meetings; in the 
absence of the President, or if the Presi- 
dent so desires, the Provost shall preside; 
in the absence of both the President and 
the Provost, or if each or both so desire, 
the Secretary of the Senate shall preside; 
in the absence of all three officials, the 
Senate shall elect a temporary presiding 
officer." 

4. Delete all of 6(e) and substitute the 
following : "6(e). The Senate shall choose 
a Secretary from among the members of the 
Faculty. The Secretary shall be the ad- 
ministrative officer of the Senate, and con- 
sequently it shall be his duty to coordinate 
the activities of the Senate and its 
committees, to oversee the implementation of 
Senate enactments, and to serve as official 
spokesman of the Senate. The Secretary shall 
also serve as Secretary of the Faculty." 

5. Add 8(d) : "8(d). The Secretary of the 
Senate shall be an ex officio non-voting 
member of all standing and ad. hoc committees 
of the Senate, except the Nominating 
Committee, and except those committees of 
which he is (by Constitutional or By-Law 
provision) an ex officio voting member." 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



6 . Amend the first sentence of 8(g) . ( the 
Committee on Committees provision ) so 
that it shall read: "8(g) (2). Its 
membership shall be one elected senator 
representing each of the Schools and 
Colleges of the University (except the 
College of Arts and Sciences which shall 
have one representative from each of the 
three Divisions) , the Secretary of the 
Senate ex officio , and one member of the 
Administration, the latter to be appointed 
by the President." 

7. Renumber 8(d) thru 8(1) as 8(e) thru 8 (m) . 
After discussion, motion was made, seconded, and it was 



also 



VOTED : That paragraph 4(a) of the Constitution of 
the University of Massachusetts Faculty 
Senate at Amherst be amended to read as 
follows : 

4. Membership . (a) The following officials 
of the University shall be ex officio 
members of the Senate with the power to 
vote: President, Provost, Treasurer...., 
and Director of University Libraries . 

Chairman Troy said the future of the Marine Science pro- 
gram was then explored. Dean Moore of the Graduate School 
described the current status of Marine Science Studies at the Uni- 
versity. Other segments of higher education in Massachusetts have 
interest in this field as evidenced in the committee established 
by Chancellor Millard currently studying this subject. The Trustee 
Faculty and Educational Policy Committee felt that an ambitious pro 
gram in the marine science field is so serious and expensive a 
commitment that a great deal more must be learned about it by the 
committee before any specific recommendations can be made. The 
conclusions that may be arrived at by Chancellor Millard's 
committee must also be awaited. 

Chairman Troy noted also that Marine Science Studies must 
be evaluated in terms of other priorities such as Continuing Educa- 
tion, Law School, Educational TV, and other equally vital programs. 
In summary, he said, it must be explored very carefully in the 
light of the University's master plan which is evolving on many 
levels. He concluded that the present report is to be considered 
merely as a progress report. 

Trustee Gordon thanked Dean Moore for his prompt contri- 
bution to the report, adding that he felt the University should 

continue to explore this field within the framework of the Board 
of Higher Education.

FREIBURG 



The Malawi and Uganda programs are federally funded until 
1970. The Oxford, Bologna and Madrid programs are summer programs, 
self-supporting through tuition. The Freiburg (Atlantic Studies) 
program runs for a full year. The directors of the programs, Chair- 
man Troy said, spelled out the scope of the work in terms of the 
number of students. The committee was very favorably impressed by 
the intelligence and commitment of the various spokesmen for these 
programs. He expressed the hope that all of them can be continued 
since they provide an enriching experience for graduate and under- 
graduate students. Chairman Troy noted that Vice-Dean Maki has been 
asked to become Chairman of a reconstituted Atlantic Studies Center 
Committee, on which eight departments will be represented. The 
emphasis in Freiburg is on an interdisciplinary program, he said, 
and is not limited to linguistics or any single field. 

Chairman Troy asked for questions and there being none, 
submitted for approval a request that the Freiburg program be 
financed on the same basis as last year ($20,000) . Motion was made, 
seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To authorize the continuation of the 

Atlantic Studies Center at the Univer- 
sity of Freiburg, Germany and request 
for financial support for 1968-69, in 
accord with Document T68-030 attached 
to and made a part of these minutes. 

Trustee Gordon commended the report. With reference to 
the Freiburg program, he noted the wisdom of making this a trial 
program. 

Discussion followed on the development of institutional 
ties with other universities for our overseas programs. It was 
agreed that access to the Freiburg program should be confined 
primarily to the University. If there is a need for attracting 
qualified students from other institutions, a relationship should 
be developed with one or more members of the Five-College group. 

The Trustees having had an opportunity to read the Rules 
and Regulations in the Student Handbook, and upon recommendation of 
the Faculty and Educational Policy Committee with a recommended 
change incorporated, it was moved, seconded, and 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : That the rules and regulations contained 
in Document T68-013 presented to this 
meeting be and hereby are adopted as rules 
and regulations for the management and con- 
trol of the affairs of the University and 
for its faculty, undergraduate students and 
employees; that the enforcement procedures 
and penalties set forth therein be and here- 
by are adopted and imposed for violation 
thereof; that the president of the Univer- 
sity be and he hereby is authorized and 
directed to conduct continuing studies of 
the subject matter of such rules and regula- 
tions and to present recommendations to the 
Trustees for amendment thereof and that the 
action hereby taken shall not constitute an 
amendment or repeal of any policy, rule or 
regulation heretofore adopted by the Trustees 
after the enactment of Chapter 648 of the 
Acts of 1962 but shall constitute an amend- 
ment of any rule or regulation theretofore 
adopted to the extent necessary to conform 
such earlier rules and regulations to those 
adopted hereby. 

Chairman Troy noted that the President has emphasized 
that these rules and regulations are in harmony with earlier ones. 
There may be some future changes and the present regulations are 
not to be regarded as absolutely rigid. The President asked for 
further comments and suggestions. Mr. Troy suggested an improve- 
ment in the prose. 

The Chairman expressed his continuing interest in a 
series of agreements with other state universities whereby a 
greater national distribution of students could be brought about 
through reciprocal exchange at in-state tuition rates. He stated 
his conviction that this would lead to marked decline in the 
provincialism attributed to state universities. Chairman Troy said 
a committee of faculty and administration should be formed to ex- 
plore this possibility. It was noted that, although the Trustees 
had voted the preceding year to extend permission for regional 
(New England) exchange students to enter the University as freshmen 
at in-state tuition rates, this plan has not enjoyed great success 
Only seven students took advantage of the program, compared to 
thirteen the previous year. 

Chairman Healey then submitted the report of the Executive 
Committee. He requested approval of the list of nominees for 
Honorary Degrees which had been discussed in executive session in 
accordance with prescribed custom. A motion was thereupon made,

establishment of redefined charge schedules. 

Treasurer Johnson said the Board earlier in the year had 
voted "remote access" charges for the Research Computer Center. 
This covered use by the Five College group as well as on-campus 
users. Now, the University has requests for use by other higher 
education units and other agencies in the Commonwealth. The 
Treasurer distributed Document T68-032 listing a schedule of 
recommended charges for these situations. 

After discussion, a motion was made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That for state institutions of higher educa- 
tion remote inquiry access to the CDC 3600 
Research Center Computer may be provided 
through the furnishing by the University of 
teletype remote units at a charge of $6,000.00 
per year or $500.00 per month with a minimum 
charge of $1,500.00 for three months or less 
of service with the provision that the using 
institution pay for the telephone line charges 
in addition to the above rates. This service 
may, with the approval of the President, be 
extended to other departments or agencies of 
the Commonwealth provided, however, that the 
Research Computer Center shall make such 
services available only to the extent that 
it has unused capacity after meeting the re- 
search and instructional needs of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. 

Treasurer Johnson then distributed Document T68-033 re- 
ferring to Establishment of a Schedule of Charges for the School of 
Engineering Hybrid Computer. The School of Engineering has re- 
quested the establishment of a trust fund for support of the Hybrid 
Computer equipment. The purpose of the fund will be to receive sums 
from grants and contracts to help maintain and expand the equip- 
ment; also to pay for necessary student-secretarial assistance. 
The fund would be administered by the Engineering Faculty Hybrid 
Computer Committee. Expenditures over $200 would require the 
approval of the Dean. 

On motion made and seconded, it was

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the meeting was called to order by 
Chairman Boyden at 1:45 p.m. 

The Chairman called for consideration of the minutes of 
the previous meeting, which had been circulated. The Secretary 
called attention to a correction and read a substitute paragraph as 
follows : 

Discussion followed on the development of in- 
stitutional ties with other universities for 
our overseas programs. It was agreed that 
access to the Freiburg program should be con- 
fined primarily to the University. If there 
is a need for attracting qualified students 
from other institutions, a relationship should 
be developed with one or more members of the 
Five College group. 

Motion was thereupon made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : ' To approve the minutes of the Board of 
Trustees as corrected for November 17, 
1967. 

Chairman Boyden then called for comments by the President!.

Morse and Donahue were most receptive and spent a great deal of 
time with the Dean of the Medical School and himself in Washington. 
He said they met with Director of the Division of Manpower for the 
U. S. Health Department and others to gain support for the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts Medical School building program in 
Worcester. Dean Soutter plans to return to Washington (December 
19) for further discussions in an effort to expedite processing of 
the Medical School request and to insure that the request, with re- 
vised plans, will be filed by February 29, 1968. 

President Lederle quoted Dr. Frank W. McKee, Director of 
the Division of Physician Manpower for the U. S. Health Department, 
as stating that department has been so under-appropriated, there is 
a backlog of requests for funds totaling more than $100,000,000. 

Dean Soutter further informed the Board that the school 
has acquired the Shaw Building in Worcester which is being restored 
for use for temporary teaching quarters pending completion of the 
school. He described it as an excellent building with two large 
warehouses which can be converted into laboratories for student use 
It is expected this building will be ready for a small class in the 
fall of 1970. 

The Dean reviewed the current situation on grants, stating 
that the request for funds to be used for construction of a science 
research building has been rejected on the grounds the space allo- 
cated for the faculty is too great. It was noted that any cutback 
on space allocated to faculty will impede recruitment. The re- 
cruiting of top notch people is a most important task in building 
the school. 

President Lederle then described a bill introduced into 
the Legislature (House 5343) which would have the effect of re- 
quiring the University and all other state colleges to channel all 
Federal grants and aid through the state treasurer's office. He 
said the Legislature does not appear to understand the complicated 
character of the legislation that is being proposed. The President 
said H. 5343 is completely unsatisfactory; it would make it im- 
possible to compete for faculty. He noted it had been planned to 
try to secure a "Center of Excellence Grant," but with the kinds of 
restrictions contained in the Bill, this would be impossible. 

Dean Redfern, in further detail, described the nature and 
effect of the Bill (5343) , stating the administration had been 
working diligently with appropriate committees on a bill for re- 
porting of federal grants so that the Legislature would have full 
information about the impact of Federal funds. The Dean said appro- 
priate wording had been added to the bill which would have made the 
system workable and would not have adversely affected development 
of public institutions and their ability to attract these funds into 
the Commonwealth. However, the Bill was changed, amendments dropped 
and a revised bill injurious to the University and other state in- 
stitutions and departments appears to be ready for enactment. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dean Redfern said our legal counsel has expressed concern 
in regard to two factors: 

(1) control over utilization of funds 

(2) apparent takeover by the state of 
allowances in these grants and de- 
positing in state treasury- 
He said as to item (1) the wording of the present bill would put 
the public institutions in a pre-fiscal autonomy situation in re- 
gard to funds. As to item (2) this would cover all gifts and 
grants to the University, not only federal grants. In addition, 

he said, (3) under pre-fiscal autonomy, the judgment of minor state 
officials could override judgment of the University and other 
officials as to expenditure of these funds. (4) There is an addi- 
tional serious question of whether the bill in its present form may 
not be unconstitutional. Such a question would not arise if the 
legislation provided that the federal funds were to be deposited 
"in trust." They could then be expended by the University "without 
appropriation" to carry out the purposes for which they were 
granted by the federal government. (5) The process and procedures 
of recovering funds under this bill would be awkward at best. As 
many as 10 extra administrative steps would be involved, and there 
is a good chance that the 30-day "letters of credit" extended by 
the federal agencies would in fact expire in many instances before 
administrative red tape at the state level would permit the funds 
to be used. This would have a disastrous effect on our research 
program. 

The Dean expressed serious concern as to the effect the 
legislation would have on the attitude of those scholars likely to 
get awards. Many would not feel the incentive to make application 
if they could not be assured of full flexibility in utilizing the 
funds made available from Washington. There is further concern 
with the fate of indirect (overhead) cost allowances now provided 
by the Federal government, as well as for the partial support for 
the research computer center. 

It was noted that few, if any other state universities 
in the nation, are hampered by a similar set of restrictions. No 
New England state university is so restricted. 

Dean Redfern advised that the Board of Higher Education 
at a meeting on December 15 unanimously voted to request the 
Governor to seek modifications in the legislation that would pro- 
vide for a reporting system without hampering public institutions; 
or to veto the bill to give proper time for consideration until 
the next legislative session. He stated it would be helpful if 
the Board of Trustees in considering the matter would adopt a 
similar resolution, and forward it to the Governor to express con- 
cern about this matter. 

Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: - That the Board of 
Trustees of the University of Massachusetts 
respectfully requests the Governor to return to 
the General Court, for modification, H. 5343, 
relative to Reporting of Grants and Gifts to 
the Commonwealth, to make such legislation com- 
patible with the continued growth of our public 
institutions of higher education and with their 
ability to attract federal assistance; or, if 
necessary, to veto such legislation in order to 
provide adequate time in the next session to 
carefully consider appropriate legislation for 
the reporting of federal grants. 

Chairman Boyden then asked for the report of the Committee 
on Faculty and Educational Policy.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Chairman Troy stated at the meeting of December 8 of 
this committee, the Ad Hoc Law School Committee report was given 
and the Feasibility Study: The Need For A University of Massachu- 
setts Law School (Document 66-086) was discussed. This study had 
been submitted a year ago but certain other matters had higher 
priority and it had been set aside. Professor Havard and Mr. Suid 
re-submitted the updated study and after discussion the committee 
was convinced of the need for a law school in the western Massa- 
chusetts area for our students and others. Chairman Troy noted the 
need is a growing one, in view of the expanding population. 

The committee had considered the projected costs in some 
detail. The budget seemed modest and realistic: total $45,000 
for basic salaries for a Dean, a Librarian and secretarial help, 
8,000 volume library, $80,000 and certain support services such as 
travel, supplies, equipment, etc. $14,200; for a total of 
$139,700 to get started. 

One of the requirements, Chairman Troy said, is specifi- 
cally assigned space, and this could be allotted from our present 
space on campus. In a matter of perhaps five years a building woulji 
be needed. Trustee Troy pointed out that Massachusetts is one of 
the few states without a state-supported law school. He added that 
the need has been recognized in the General Court and cited bills 
filed by Representative McGuane and others at recent sessions. 
Chairman Troy read the recommendation of his committee and motion 
was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To actively support establishment of a 
law school at the University in Amherst 
and instruct the administration to pro- 
ceed toward this end with the Board of 
Higher Education and legislative leaders 
as may be appropriate. 

Trustee Troy said the Committee on Faculty and Educa- 
tional Policy then discussed with Dean Hunsberger the proposal to 
secure a distinguished professor for addition to the staff. After 
consideration, motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To exert every effort to recruit a 

distinguished faculty candidate pro- 
posed by Dean Hunsberger 

The Dean of the Graduate School, the Chairman said, had 
an interesting and exciting report, to secure a free site presently 
owned by the Coast Guard. State Senator William Saltonstall, the 
Town of Gloucester and its newspaper advised the University of the 
possibility and arranged site visits and offered other aid. The 
site is located at Dolliver Neck, ten minutes from the center of 
Gloucester, two and one-half hours from Amherst. The station has 
three buildings, including a dwelling or headquarters building, a

garage and a boathouse, all in excellent shape. These could be de- 
veloped into a marine laboratory station for the University. As 
a location for the University's new graduate-level Marine Sciences 
Program and other related studies, the Gloucester site offers proxi' 
mity to a diversity of ecological habitats and an abundance of 
marine biota. 

The Coast Guard, presently occupying the site, would 
phase out over a five-year period and the University could begin to 
phase in. There is adjoining land, the acquisition of which could 
be considered at a later date. 

Chairman Troy alluded to the summary on page 7 of the re- 
port of his committee outlining nine points encouraging immediate 
action of the Trustees to acquire the property: 

1. The proximity of the site to the University 
of Massachusetts and its location of the 
north shore of the state. 

2. The excellence of the site with respect to 
diversity of available ecological habitats 
and abundance of marine biota. 

3. The fact that the property will in all 
probability be an outright gift to the 
University of Massachusetts. 

4. The fact that the three existing buildings 
could be used almost immediately as a 
marine facility for research students and 
staff. 

5. The relative isolation of Dolliver Neck from 
the town of Gloucester and a common city 
thoroughfare. 

6. The fact that the town of Gloucester is 
willing to defray some of the intial cost 
of developing the marine laboratory. 

7. Gloucester is the site of the regional 
laboratories of the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries 
and the director of these laboratories would 
welcome a university-operated marine facility 
at Gloucester. The University would benefit 
through mutual cooperation with this govern- 
ment laboratory. Some of our staff and stu- 
dents are even now working on various research 
programs at this laboratory.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



8. Gloucester represents an immediate source 
of marine craftsmen, supplies and docking 
facilities; the town's inner harbor is 
less than one mile from the boathouse, easy- 
reach in time of storm or repair of one or 
another type. 

9. The Dolliver Neck site is also attractive 
in view of the adjacent private land which 
is reported to be for sale. To be a work- 
able station, the coast guard property must 
be enlarged through purchase of private land; 
the Dolliver Neck peninsula may well have 
this land available. 

To begin with, there would be need only for a Director 
and secretarial help, Chairman Troy said. 

The Chairman stated his committee's interest in Dean 
Moore's report of this available site. The Faculty and Educational 
Policy Committee felt that it should be approved in principle. 

Dean Moore stated he had informed Chancellor Millard that 
the University would be pleased to cooperate with other state in- 
stitutions in the use of this site. The Dean and several faculty 
members visited the site and unanimously voted to urge the Board to 
approve. 

Chairman Troy noted that a vote was not required on this, 
just an indication of Board approbation and encouragement to pro- 
ceed. This was given. 

Chairman Troy then introduced a list of sabbatical leave 
recommendations for 1968-69 stressing the word "leave." He ex- 
pressed the hope faculty would leave the campus for their sabbati- 
cals in order to gain broadening experiences* 

Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the list of faculty members 
recommended for sabbatical leaves for 
1968-69 as amended and attached herewith 
(Document T68-039) . 

Provost Tippo then circulated copies of Senate document 
68-007C A FACULTY SENATE AD HOC COMMITTEE REPORT ON PICKETING. He 
commented that the nature of this widespread problem was well 
known and it had been considered advisable to establish a policy 
in advance of any possible need. Accordingly, the Faculty Senate 
had formed an Ad Hoc Committee, with the resultant proposal, as 
distributed.

The Provost said this document had been discussed by the 
Student Senate as well as the Faculty Senate. Since the meeting of 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy on December 8, when 
it was first described, the amendments as noted (by use of wavy 
lines) on the documents circulated are now proposed. Provost Tippo 
briefly summarized the changes in item 3 as safeguards in which the 
students were interested. This provided that the penalty for the 
first offense, in a case where there has been compliance with the 
requests referred to in 4A, shall not be separation from the Uni- 
versity (where the violation has not involved significant personal 
abuse or property damage) . 

He drew attention to item C, on page 2, which incorporated 
the provision that photographs or negatives used for identification 
of a student shall become exclusive property of the appropriate 
judicial bodies, not to be distributed, and shall be destroyed upon 
final settlement of the case. The Provost noted item E, on page 2, 
which provides that, in the event the University police are unable 
to cope successfully with the infractions, then the appropriate 
authorities may request outside assistance. 

The Provost stated that item (5) was an addition and 
completely new. After consideration, the administration felt it 
detracts from the document and while they have no serious objection 
to it, recommend to the Board that the document (Sen. 68-007C) be 
accepted with the exception of item 5. 

Provost Tippo informed the Board that Professor Fenton was 
present representing the Faculty Senate Committee; also, Mr. James 
Collins, President of the Student Senate. In addition, Professor 
I. Silver, author of several of the amendments, was also present. 
There was discussion during which Professor Fenton responded to 
questions. Trustee Maginnis asked for a clarification if item 3. 
Professor Fenton said he did not author this provision, but was not 
opposed to it and stated this resolution provided protection that 
no one could be expelled for a very minor act. Further discussion 
revolved around section 2 - which section protects peaceful counter 
demonstrators. 

Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the policies set out in Senate 
Document 68-007C (with the deletion of 
item 5) , with reference to picketing and 
other forms of demonstration on campus, 
(see attached) (T68-039A) 

Trustee Crowley stressed the importance of the direct 
availability of the administration and the Board of Trustees (to 
the Student Government) at any time for discussion and resolution 
of problem situations.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



President Lederle stated the University has as responsi- 
ble behavior on the part of the students as anywhere else in the 
nation. Our students have evidenced concern for their University. 
The Provost emphasized that the students have always brought 
problems to the administration for discussion. 

Mr. Collins, President of the Student Senate, stated the 
approach the Student Government took was to evaluate how the 
picketing problem was handled on other campuses throughout the 
country. It then decided it would be far better for the faculty 
and students to work together on a code. Hopefully, one of the 
benefits to be derived from this code is that the members of the 
committee will have a code and set of ground rules before any diffi 
culties arise. The Student Government did make overtures and work 
with the various people about this problem, Mr. Collins said. He 
drew attention to page 1, saying that demonstrations should be 
allowed in lobbies, providing due regard is given to existing fire 
and safety regulations. Mr. Collins said he would ask the Student 
Senate whether they wish to petition for permission for demonstra- 
tions to take place in lobbies. He inquired whether the code will 
be flexible enough so that any revisions could be incorporated into 
it at a later date. 

Provost Tippo replied that if Mr. Collins could persuade 
the Faculty Senate, the administration, and the Board of Trustees 
of the desirability of changes, they might be accepted. ' 

Chairman Haigis then presented the report of the Committer 
on Buildings and Grounds. He said, as announced previously, no 
recommendation as to the University of Massachusetts at Boston site 
would be made at this meeting, although discussions and meetings 
continue with the administration in Boston and Amherst and Sasaki, 
Dawson, DeMay Associates. Chairman Haigis said every effort will 
be made to have a recommendation as soon as possible, adding that 
the committee has not departed from its intention to have a core 
area site in Boston. 

The Chairman then had distributed to the meeting copies 
of the Capital Outlay Request for Fiscal 1969, with supporting 
material (Document T68-034D) which indicate, on the basis of 200 
gross square feet per student, at an anticipated enrollment in- 
crease of 1500 students per year, there will be required, 300,000 
square feet per year. The capital outlay must be done in advance, 
he noted, to prepare for the students. 

Attention was drawn to the Order of Friority for Con- 
struction as set forth in Document T68-034C attached. This lists 
in order of priority: Bartlett West, the Power Plant Addition and 
the Relocation of the Farm, which latter had been cut back from 
$2,800,000 to $1,900,000 by agreement with the College of Agri- 
culture.

Chairman Haigis noted that the proposed auditorium-class 
room- laboratory building for arts and sciences would be at the south 
end of the pond; the life science building would be at the east side 

Chairman Haigis stated a vote was required to extend a 
present contract for designer services at the University of Massa- 
chusetts in Boston. After comment, motion was made, seconded, and 
it was 

VOTED : That the Treasurer extend the present con- 
tract with Drummey, Rosane and Anderson, 
Inc. for designer services to cover Massa- 
chusetts State Project U68-1-Item 8068-28 
for certain renovations and improvements 
to provide additional teaching and labora- 
tory facilities at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston. 

Treasurer Johnson then informed the Board that the Uni- 
versity administration, the Bureau of Building Construction and the 
University Building Authority have had a series of meetings to 
discuss utility lines. He said that, because of the restricted site 
location, it was resolved to have the Building Authority actually 
design and supervise all of this work. The Treasurer said a bill 
has been filed in the Legislature which would make possible for the 
State to reimburse the Building Authority for certain costs. How- 
ever, the bill has not moved. On December 5, 1967, all parties con- 
cerned agreed the only solution was for the Building Authority to 
include this work as part of the Eleventh Project. It would be 
self-liquidated in the amount of $200,000 as part of garage funding 
at an additional annual cost of $13,000 a year which should present 
no difficulty. 

After discussion, motion was made, seconded, and it was

VOTED : To request the University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority to enlarge the scope of 
the Eleventh Project to include the re-

electrical ducts, storm drains, steam systems, 
water lines, and gas systems all located with- 
in the boundaries of the Eleventh Project or 
necessary to its completion, said re-routing 
and re-construction to conform to the master 
plan studies and recommendations developed by 
the Commonwealth consultants, Jackson & More- 
land and Whitman & Howard, as approved by the

struction as jointly discussed with officers 
of the Building Authority and their designers 
on December 5, 1967. 

The Treasurer then reviewed for the Board the history of 
the acquisition of the parcel of woodland from Miss H. Ruth 
Mclntire (Board of Trustees minutes, August 14, 1967). The deed 
which required the signature of a majority of Trustees was then 
circulated and the signatures affixed. The signatures were then 
duly sworn and notarized by Attorney Myers. 

Treasurer Johnson then requested reaffirmation of a pre- 
vious vote (August 14, 1967) relative to the property of Edward T. 
Waskiewicz, with a change in the context from "purchase price" to 
"award of damage" as noted. 

Motion was made, seconded, and it was then

The President then commented on Communications and Peti- 
tions, saying that for some time various legislative leaders and 
others have considered whether the Commonwealth ought to support a 
dental school. A study by Dean Raymond J. Nagle made at the 
Governor's request, through the Board of Higher Education, appears 
to show rather clearly that there is a need. The time is now, said 
President Lederle, if the Commonwealth is prepared to support the 
project. The President added that he has received a letter from 
Chancellor Millard of the Board of Higher Education indicating it 
is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees first to respond 
that they actively support the establishment of a dental school in 
connection with the medical school in Worcester, and then, authoriz^ 
the University administration, to take appropriate steps to commu- 
nicate Trustee views to the Governor, General Court and the Board 
of Higher Education. 

The original Nagle report has been circulated previously 
to the Trustees. President Lederle observed the Trustees might 
wish to postpone consideration until the January, 1968 meeting of 
the Board, and in the meantime process the Nagle report through the 
Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy in the same manner as 
the Law School report. 

Chairman Troy queried whether action on the Nagle report 
would further complicate the problems of establishing the medical 
school. Dean Soutter felt that if there is to be a dental school 
this has a direct bearing on medical school planning and that the 
sooner we know, the sounder can be our overall planning in 
Worcester. 

There was discussion, and it was agreed to submit this 
matter to the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy for con- 
sideration. Motion was thereupon made, seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To submit consideration of establishment 
of a dental school at the University of 
Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester 
to the Committee on Faculty and Education- 
al Policy. 

It was also 

VOTED : To go into executive session for the 

purpose of discussing additional nominees
